Billing Boats BB603 1/30 Scale Norden Model Boat (Unassembled Kit)

This boat type was originally built in about 1930 by local shipbuilders in the small Danish towns of Klitmøller and Vorupør , and represented a considerable improvement of the boats of the time. Since then, no major changes have been made, although the boats have become a few feet longer and now have a wheel house under cover.

The Norden is a stable and seaworthy vessel. It’s a rather round design which limits the speed to approx. 6 knots. Weather permitting, fishing starts early in the morning and continues all day. The boats are lowered and raised be means of an electric winch, with wires embedded in a block firmly anchored a good distance from shore. Before being hauled ashore, the boats are sailed as far up on the beach as the waves can push them. The winch hook is then attached to the bow irons for hauling.

All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!
