The Flatiron Gunboats were a product of the ‘Fortress England’ movement and were designed to protect the harbours and coastal areas. With a relatively low silhouette they were difficult to locate from long distances by enemy warships. This relatively simple design, a 2 sheet plan (MAR3524), can be made as detailed as the builder requires. The basic hull construction can be made easier with this laser cut woodpack of the frames and deck.
