The America’s Cup sailboats have always been beautiful examples of speed and the sailing technology of the times, but nothing stands out as much as the famous J-boats of the early 1900s.
Amati model is a great source of models kits of these graceful boats, with more than a dozen America’s Cup kits to choose from. The grandest of these kits is the 1/35-scale model of the 1934 UK Challenger Endeavour.
We recently ran across this build log on The NRG’s Model Ship World by a modeler that goes by the screen name “cdrusn89”. He started posting his log at the end of August. Take a look at his progress only a few weeks into the build: https://modelshipworld.com/topic/21703-endeavour-j-class-by-cdrusn89-amati-135-scale/
This is a BIG model that measures nearly 4′ long and 5′ high. At a scale of 1:35, it gives you a lot of opportunities to add all the detailing you want, but includes plenty of its own. This kit makes a great personal project that will make for a beautiful display piece in any room. It also makes a great gift for the seafarer or sailing buff in your life.
Note: Due to a recently negotiated deal with Amati Model, we have just reduced prices on all Amati kits. In this case, that means a reduction in price for this kit from $399 to $282.95. That’s a $116 savings – a 29% price drop! So hurry and get yours while we have them in stock!
