Blackbeard's Flagship


If you think Metal Earth models are just too small, or if you want even more realism, Iconx was made for you. Their larger size can accommodate even more laser-etched detail on 4" x 8" (10.16 x 20.32 cm) metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions.  

Queen Anne's Revenge is a moderately challenging Iconx model. It consists of about 50 pieces on two sheets of metal. Blackbeard the pirate used the ship for prize-taking for less than a year. Assembled, it measures 4.2"H x 1.7" x 6".

Please note that Iconx models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. Recommended for ages 14+.

The Royal Navy launched the 200-ton frigate Concord in 1710. A year later, she was captured by the French, who modified her to carry more cargo, renamed her La Concorde de Nantes, and used her as a slave ship. In 1717 the pirate Captain Benjamin Hornigold captured her near Martinique and turned her over to his man Edward Teach, whom he elevated to captain. The notorious Blackbeard added cannon and renamed her Queen Anne's Revenge. He sailed from the west coast of Africa to the Caribbean, merrily taking British, French, and Portuguese prizes along the way. Less than a year later he ran her aground in North Carolina, disbanded his flotilla, and dispersed his crew. Some believe that the grounding was deliberate because Blackbeard soon surrendered and accepted a royal pardon. Civilian life must not have agreed with Teach, though, because he returned to piracy and died in combat before 1718 was out.

A private treasure-hunting firm discovered the probable remains of Queen Anne's Revenge in 1996. More than 250,000 artifacts have been recovered, including the motly assortment of cannon one would expect to find on a pirate vessel. The wreckage is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and owned by the State of North Carolina.
