Ship modeler Clare Hess shows progress on the Amati Swedish Gunboat kit as his model nears completion. This is one of the lowest cost kits in the Amati lineup. If you’re interested in the kit, you can find it in our online shop here: http://www.agesofsail.com/ecommerce/amati-kits/historic/am1550-amati-swedish-gunboat.html

The Swedish Gunboat project is the closest I have to completion now, and it’s very nearly done, so I decided to put most of my effort there now. My ideas about using it to practice new sail making techniques or other grand thoughts have been set aside. As I mentioned before, the model is mostly being built straight out of the box, but there are a few minor modifications.
