Amati Model has outdone themselves with the release of this new kit. It is a 1/32-scale model kit of the Sleeping Car of the famed Orient Express, known for luxurious accomodations and international travel across Europe, connecting locations as far as Calais, Istanbul, and Athens.
The new Amati kit measures over 28″ in length and features multimedia construction, using high quality wood, parts of photo-etched brass and nickel-silver, highly detail metal casting, and more.
The model features a super detailed interior and a removable roof top, so you can access it all.
The kit, which will be in stock very soon, is a very high-end kit and lists for $1199, but we will have a special introductory sale price of $999.

Agatha Christie / Poirot fans take note!
It may not be a ship model, but this new kit from Amati looks pretty awesome. I imagine just about any modeler would enjoy taking on this 1/32-scale model of a 1930s luxury sleeping car. I’m told that this monster of a multimedia kit comes in at about 30 pounds, shipping weight!
Been wanting to build this model for over a year, finally invested with Ages of Sail, I am totally pleased. I have been modeling for almost seventy years, this model is the most detailed and highest quality I’ve ever experienced. Be aware, you need expert modelling skills, and be prepared to invest a lot of time and patience in building, but if you want an excellent challenge and a museum quality display piece, I encourage you to go for it, you will not be disappointed. By the way shipping weight is 21 lbs.
