New In Stock – Barking Fish Carrier, Ranger 1864 – Vanguard Models

While this is about the fifth fishing boat kit from Vanguard Models, and they are all kind of similar looking, this is one I really like. As a novice level kit, it looks like it will also make a very good kit for someone who is good with small tools and is interested in trying out a plank-on-bulkhead model kit.

The big plus, to me, is that the 58-pages of instructions are clear and in english, AND you can download them before you even spend any money on the kit. Ages of Sail is in the process of putting all the Vanguard Models kit instructions on their product pages, which is a great way to find out just what you’re getting before you make the purchase.

Just in stock is the latest ship model kit from Chris Watton’s Vanguard Models, the Ranger, a Barking Fish Carrier. Replacing the earlier well smacks, the fish carriers transported fish just caught from the fishing fleets and raced them back to the markets, requiring the best speed to assure fresh catch. So, boats like the Ranger were fast and had very fine lines.
