Sorry, sold out.
this page are of the assembled and painted prototype kit,
measuring 9.5 inches long.
In an effort to diversify our products, Small Art Works is proud to produce the ONLY truly accurate scale model kit of the famous 15 foot bottom Lunenburg Trawl dory.
Built in the popular 1/25th scale, common for vehicle models (or, in a pinch, can pass for a 14 foot "Bastard" dory at 1/24th scale), the model is suitable for display with like-scaled model collections, for example on the boat trailer of your favourite car, truck or SUV model.
This model replicates with extreme accuracy the details and proportions of the 15' bottom length Lunenburg dories (dory sizes are measured by the length of their bottoms rather than overall length) that were built and used during the heyday of schooner fishing off the Grand Banks; the exact type of dory used on the famous Bluenose Schooner and most of the Canadian and some American fishing fleets used during the 1800's through the first half of the 20th century.
The Lunenburg Dories are still built today for recreation, including the International Dory races held annually in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, and Gloucester, Massachusetts.
The Small Art Works Lunenburg Dory Kits are produced in co-operation with The Dory Shop, the oldest continuous production commercial dory building company in North America. Measurements of exising Lunenburg Dories and dimensions taken from historic molds and actual dory patterns (some of them nearly a hundred years old!) were used to develop the kit. The models are available as kits to be assembled by the purchaser or, by request, fully finished at extra cost.
