The kit is a model shipways New Bedford whale boat, the boat is 24 inches long 1/16 scale. The kit comes with the materials to build the whale boat only, the davit /crane I built from scratch according to the plans and instructions which come with the whale boat kit. I thought it was nice of model shipways to include those plans in the kit. Be sure your kit includes the book " To build a whale boat" by Eric A.R. Ronnberg Jr,

My kit was missing the book and I had to purchase it separately. The plans and instructions are very vague and I could not have done it without the book, too it was very informative on the history of the whaleboat which also helps to understand each area of the build. There is a reason for every part on the finished build. Good luck! A.J.
