Beautiful, brand new wooden model ship kit by Mantua Panart the Lancia Armata
These launches were armed with naval guns of different calibre and type; in the bow section a cannon or carronade was installed while in the stern two more light, small cannons were placed to be aimed by hand. Usually, these boats were employed in coastal patrols or in escort services but, also demonstrated their wartime capacity in surprise actions attacking craft in difficulty or anchored or at roadstead. Due to their remarkable maneuverability, they were also in great numbers employed during landing actions, preceeding the main fleet which moved slower and was more vulnerable. This is a very detailed kit with brass cannon barrels, and lots of detail parts. This is a plank-on-bulkhead model, but because it's an open boat, it is finished with three layers of planking, with the bulkheads specially designed to be removed after the outer planking is completed. Lots of quality woods are included in addition to wooden blocks and wood and metal fittings, flag and sail material. An optional pre-sewn sail is available (Mantua Panart item #34022).
