Product Description

 
This is stunning, Fully assembled replica of the Chinese Junk, which was featured in Bruce Lees movie. This 27-inch model is built with quality woods from scratch by master craftsmen using “plank on frame” construction, just like real ships. Each handcrafted model takes more than 50 hours to build. It was built through original ships plans, pictures and drawings. Strip by strip, small planks of mahogany and teak were put together and a smooth surface was created. This model’s amazing details include: wooden front, main and mizzen masts, fabric sails with wooden frame, metal anchor, brass canons, wooden life boat, detailed decking with wooden stairs and sky lights... Model comes with a sturdy wooden stand and metal nameplate. Absolutely no plastic parts!
    A junk is a boat used in China. Junks usually have around two or three sails but sometimes have four. Each mast is made of bamboo. Bamboo is used because it is so strong that you don’t need very many ropes. Very large junks (about 150 meters or 492 feet long) are usually used for worldwide trips. An average sized junk usually carries food from city to city. The first Chinese junks were built in the Song dynasty between 960-1270. Later, in 1271-1368 a Mongol emperor built the first Chinese imperial treasure fleets. These junks sailed to Sumatra, Ceylon, and southern India. The famous explorer, Marco Polo journeyed to the Mongol court and described seeing four-masted junks that had sixty cabins for merchants and crews of up to 300. About six centuries ago, the Chinese built huge armadas of junks that sailed to Ceylon, Arabia, and East Africa. The fleet had huge nine-masted junks that were over 400 feet long and 150 feet wide or 122 meters long and 46 meters wide. There were 27,000 crew members and soldiers in the armada! These junks were escorted by water tankers, supply ships, ships for cavalry horses, and patrol boats. The armada sailed to ports around the Indian Ocean and traded Chinese silk, porcelain, and lacquerware for spices, ivory, medicines, and pearls. Then between 1405-1433, treasure fleets sailed out seven times to trade with other countries. They traded from Taiwan to the Persian Gulf. Historians believe that at this time the Chinese were ready to colonize the world. However, all overseas trade was banned in the 1500s. Throughout China's history, junks were also used as war ships. Believe it or not, today many families live on junks. These families often use the junk as a way of making money.
