Bounty below the waterline?

Recommended Posts

Hi am just, well in a few weeks, to start on the Amati Bounty 1:60.  Does anyone know if she was copper plated under the waterline? I know this particular kit doesn't come with copper plates but i've seen it done and it looks pretty fantastic. But i would only want to do it if the real thing had it. i see the life-size replica which sank during Sandy was copper plated but there seem to be a lot of bounty models that don't have plating and a few that do. Also if anyone has built this kit any feedback on it would be appreciated as i can't seem to find many build logs for her. this will be my third build after Amati Santa Maria and Mamoli Golden Hind and i intend to do a log of this build for the group. tks Chris

When fitted for naval service, she was coppered. Before that, when she was the merchant ship Bethia, she was not.
