History

Junks like these plied the seas, rivers and harbours of China and Hong Kong. For the captains of Clippers carrying tea and spices to Europe, it was impossible to tell whether they were peaceful merchants or ferocious pirates, until it was too late. This highly effective model differs from a merchant junk for its weaponry, consisting of 8 small calibre canons.
