This is a 1/48 scale model of a six meter (20 foot) Misainier fishing boat from 1906 named "Mirabeau."  The Misainier was an important feature of the French Atlantic Coast in the early part of the 20th century.   These little boats were usually 4 to 8 meters long,  single masted, lug rigged, and built by individuals without formal plans.  Hundreds plied the coastal fishing grounds of Brittany until the mid 1900s.  A build log can be viewed at: https://modelshipworld.com/topic/27766-misainier-by-gbmodeler-small-french-fishing-boat-of-the-early-1900s/



What a sweet little boat. There's a lot to love here.


A well presented model, must take forever to rig though.
