BlueJacket is Back at Ages of Sail

While we’ve carried BlueJacket kits, for a long time, we only had a small handful of kits in stock. The problem with this is that there are so few American ship modeling subjects offered by the many manufacturers we carry, which are almost all from Europe. There are a few American subjects here and there, but for the most part, they are very few and far between. Also with the demise of the Midwest model boat kits, that left us with a lack of small boat kits.

So, we recently worked with BlueJacket to bring back the whole range of BlueJacket products. We’ve started listing them on Ages of Sail and we’re about half-way done.

This gives us access to BlueJackets fine line of solid-hull sailing ships and power vessels, their new plank-on-bulkhead releases like the C.S.S. Alabama and U.S.S. Kearsarge, two of the finest kits on the market, plus the old Laughing Whale line of small boat kits.

What’s more, we finally have an nice kit of an American Clipper Ship, which is such an important symbol of American maritime heritage. It’s great to be able to include The Red Jacket on our list of products!

Not to mention we now have what’s probably the most accurate kit of the frigate U.S.S. Constitution, in her War of 1812 configuration. This solid-hull kit is open from the gun duck up, allowing you to detail her interior – Another expert-level kit with over 2600 fittings!

We don’t have everything up online yet, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, just give us a call or send us an email. We should have the rest of the BlueJacket line of kits online in the next couple weeks. Stay tuned and check them out at Ages of Sail.
