Here’s a newly redone and re-released kit from Amati Model of Italy. Having seen the kit instructions and details, I think this kit is a real winner. At 19-1/2″ long, it’s a nice size model, but with such fine lines and no rigging, it would make an excellent model for a beginner. At a price of $129, it’s also a very nice price point. Best of all, it should make into a beautiful display model.
I look forward to seeing some builds of this kit soon.
We just receive our shipment from Gondola kits from Amati and had a chance to take a first look at the kit, and we have to say that this is a beautiful looking kit!
Coming in at just under 20″ long when built, the shape of the boat allowed Amati to create what looks to be a fairly easy to build model that features laser-cut frames, hull bottom and side pieces. The kit includes laser-cut wooden parts, photo-etched metal parts, a cast metal lantern, resin fork, and cloth material for upholstery. Instructions are step-by-step, with text printed in english.
Even better is that the price of this kit is only $129.00 and it’s available today, at Ages of Sail! Check it out here. Ω
