Dusek is a relatively new ship model kit manufacturer from the Czech Republic. Ages of Sail has been carrying Dusek kits back when they had only 3 different kits to offer. Now, they have about 20 and we’ve just updated our listings to reflect the most recent shipment of kits we’ve received.
Dusek kits feature all major wood parts laser cut. Plastic detail parts make for ease of construction and for realistic details. Other fittings are wood and metal, and the pages of illustrated instructions take the guesswork out of wooden ship model building.
Dusek also produces a handful of small architectural models including a medieval Swedish church, a Norse stave church and a even a church built in Bodega, CA by Spanish and Portugese immigrants in 1859. That last one even made an appearance in Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller “The Birds”.
And if you’re looking for a nice variety of Viking ship model kits in 1/35 and 1/72 scales, make sure to check out the Dusek offerings, which include 6 different Viking ship kits.
As part of our updated listings, we’ve even included links so you can download the kit instructions in case you lose yours or want them in order to help you decide which one you want to buy.
