Expanded Line of Kits from Constructo of Spain

Do you keep looking at the available kits and just having a hard time finding your next build (or maybe one of the many after that)? Constructo kits had become increasingly difficult for us to stock, so we decided to import them directly. Ages of Sail has just listed a number of kits from the popular ship model kit company.

Constructo’s lineup include classic plank-on-bulkhead wooden kits like the Cutty Sark, HMS Victory, and Bluenose II. But, Constructo also has a large number of kits with a wide range of skill requirements, assuring you’ll find something that’s a perfect fit for you.

For those just starting or looking for a fun and quick build, there are the kits from Constructo’s 8-hour Series. These kits feature pre-built and pre-painted polystyrene hulls. Just add the deck and details, add masts, rigging and sails. Check out the Virginia, Dominica and Swift from this series.

Looking for something a bit more meaty? How about the U.S. Coast Guard training ship Eagle? Or the Gorch Fock? These kits also include pre-painted and pre-built plastic hulls, but details and rigging are a lot more involved.

USCGS Eagle features pre-painted plastic hull, with the challenging rig of the 3-masted barque.

Or, if you prefer working in wood, but want something not too overwhelming, you might consider the Altair or the Carmen. These beautiful small ships feature plank-on-bulkhead construction, but have the simpler fore-and-aft rig of the classic two-masted schooner.
