Overview

A junk is a traditional Chinese sailing ship famous for over two millennia. Junks were used not only as a fishing or transport vessel but also for military purposes. They were used not only in China but across Southeast Asia. Distinctive features of a junk were sails of bamboo mats and battens in the form of a quadrangle and raised bow and aft. The sails can be fold like shutters. The structure and flexibility of junk sails make a junk fast and easily controlled. The sails of a junk can be moved inward toward the long axis of the ship, allowing a junk to sail into the wind.

The main feature is the ability to use this model in war games of 25 and 28 mm and in RPGs. It can be used in scenarios of naval battles with boarding or for battles in a port. You can buy the Junk model for tactical war games such as Castles, Cogs & Chevauchees or Confrontation. With terrain models of the Medieval Town series you would be able to create amazingly realistic Harbor landscapes.

You can easily make a sailor's knot in a rope if you wish! The set is complemented with flat cardboard miniatures of sailors and soldiers. Please note that the model is made of cardboard and not designed for running on water!

The Junk is made of durable cardboard of 1.5 millimeters thick; it has double-sided full-color printing and embossing (note that embossing is a unique technology for cardboard models!). Through the material of the model (cardboard) you can modify it or turn it to a ruined or a burned out ship. The model could be easily assembled without glue or scissors. It is provided with colorful language independent step-by-step instructions.
