Though the holidays are past and we’re into a new year new, we’ve decided to keep our Holiday Combo Sets, and we’re keeping the pricing the same and we’ve even added two more!
We now have Combo Set #5 which features the Q-Ship “Hunter” by Amati. This neat schooner rigged ship is an example of the lengths that the Allies went to in order to stop the menacing German U-Boats. Q-Ships would look and operate like an unsuspecting merchant ship to lure the hungry U-Boats in close. They would then spring into action, unveiling hidden armament in an attempt to sink the U-Boat.
This kit features a lot of etched brass parts and hidden armament under removable covers. A very unique model. You can buy the kit separately or as part of this combo set.
The other set is Combo Set #6, featuring the cutter rigged ship Lady Nelson. This is a really nice kit from Amati that is part of their Victory Models line developed by master modeler Chris Watton. This is a 1/64-scale (3/16″ = 1′) model of a classic, 18th century, armed English cutter-rigged ship.
This 1/64-scale kit is a great for intermediate modelers and a nice challenging kit for beginners. The plank-on-bulkhead kit features high quality woods, laser cut wood parts and metal parts, including photoetched brass parts. Comprehensive plans and instructions and even a display base. The completed model measures about 21″ long and 20″ high. The kit is now available as part of a combo set that includes tools, glues and the classic ship modeling book Ship Modeling from Stem to Stern.
Already have all the basics to get started in ship modeling? The Lady Nelson is available separately too.
