New BlueJacket Kits

The Ship Modeler

Don’t know if you’ve noticed, as it’s hard to tell from their website, but in the Fall of 2016, BlueJacket Shipcrafters released a few new ship model kits or, more accurately, boat model kits.

The first two are re-realeases of the miniature models of the America’s cup J-class boats Endeavour and Rainbow. Both are 1:180 scale and measure 8-1/2″ long and list at $89 each. These look like they’d make really nice desk displays. But, you’ll probably want to protect them with the pre-made acrylic cases that BlueJacket sells for them at $95.
