1/20th scale Higgins 78' Hull "Extra Ribs" Kit


This Kit consists of 16 sheets of 1.0mm (40 thou) Finish Birch Plywood, each sheet is approximately 304mm (12") x 407mm (16") and contains the "Extra" 41 ribs to make up a full 62 rib replica of the original boat hull.

Note: The Hull can be built without these ribs but the amount of extra stiffness and smoothness in the hull finish is terrific!


The fine marine grade Birch Plywwod from Finland is either 3 or 4 ply (depends what I can get) I buy it in 1210mm x 1210mm (4' x 4') sheets and cut it into 4 x 3 smaller sheets so that it will fit into my Epilog 12" x 18" 50Watt laser cutter and so that it can be shipped fairly economically.

This Kit weighs around 1.5 Kilograms or 3.3 lbs.


The package

I send all packages with tracking so that they don't get lost. Often packaes are held at the local Post Office as they can be too large for the customers mailbox, so if it has been a week or more since I notified you about shipment, check with your Post Office. If I receive an attempted delivery message I will email you.

All packages are marked with the Harmonised code for Reduced Scale Model Kits - HS950320. I also wrap the laser cut plywood in cling wrap to keep the sheets together and to reduce the "burned wood" smell which has, in the past, caused a returned shipment from France.


The total price includes parcel postage to most places in Australia, New Zealand, Canada the US, UK or Europe.
