New Kit from Amati -1/32 scale Fifie

While Amati has been busy with development work on their fantastic new Orient Express Sleeping Car kit, we haven’t seen a new ship model kit from them for a little while, until now.

Amati’s latest kit represents a type of traditional fishing boat developed on the east coast of Scotland, and mainly engaged in the herring fishery. These boats characteristically featured a plumb stem, a long, straight keel, and wide beam – a configuration that made them very stable sailers.

Amati’s Fifie motor fishing boat is the latest release and, like the rail-bound previous release, this kit is a nice big 1/32 scale. At this large scale, the plank-on-bulkhead wooden model kit measures over 27″ long and just over 17″ high. As part of Amati’s Victory Models Line, it has been extensively researched and carefully designed. The kit features Amati’s highest quality materials and includes color illustrated step-by-step building instructions and detailed plans in English.

Amati’s newest addition to the Victory Model Line has been designed specifically for any type of model maker, and as such it is a perfect kit for those who want and expect a little more. All fittings, masts and rigging have been researched using contemporary sources and the most up to date reference material avaliable to make the kit as accurate and as detailed as possible. The kit contains laser cut keel and frames, Amati wood and metal fittings, step by step color building instructions and detailed plans in English.

This is a beautiful kit that lists for under $300, and you can find it on our online store here: https://www.agesofsail.com/ecommerce/amati-kits/victory-models/scottish-fife-(amati-1:32).html
