The "Rattlesnake"

The "Rattlesnake" was a merchant ship equiped for war during the American Revolution. These types of ships were commonly refered to as "Privateers."

This model is built in 1/4 scale from 26 different kinds of woods using no paints or stains! The yellow planking is made from Yellowheart wood. The orange is Paela (a South American wood), the black is Ebony, and the white is American Holly.

The little dots are actual nails made from a naturally green-colored Poplar!
