Lancia Armata

Lancia Armata means "armed gun boat". Gun boats were used widely in Europe and North America. Mostly they were used as guard- and patrol missions in coastal areas, rivers and lakes. In swedish-finnish army gun boats played a significant role in the past centuries. In shallow and narrow waters they were more useful than bigger ships.
About the model
Kit: Aeropiccola scale unknown

Modifications: Several, in fact I almost built it up totally from scratch. All the rigging, planking and details are made by me.

Notes: I'm not sure, how authentic this kit is. Usually gun boats had one main gun and one mast, this had two. It looks too narrow to carry all that, but I decided to make it as the kit originally was presented.
