Master Korabel Kits Now at Ages of Sail

We’ve recently added a relatively new line of wooden ship model kits from Russia called Master Korabel. This company produces some amazingly well designed kits that make ship modeling easier than ever, using state of the art design and manufacturing.

Most builders are accustomed to seeing laser-cut bulkheads in their kits, but Master Korabel kits go well beyond that, using some clever engineering to give your model very sturdy construction, while making it easier to build a properly shaped hull. These kits even go so far as to provide laser-cut decks and hull planks, so that you model not only looks beautiful, but with authentically shaped hull planks as well.

Some of their kits come with various options, but for now, we’ve opted to carry just the high-end options. One of their most recent kits, the cutter-rigged tender Avos that we carry is the “Special Edition” version (PSX). In addition to all the features of the basic version, this kit includes pre-sewn sails, the ship’s boat kit, and pearwood for the hull planking and the deck structure trim.

The Tender Avos in particular includes laser-etched details in the hull planking such as the butt of the planks, scarf joints, and all the treenails perfectly marked. The kit is a beauty to behold and your resulting model will amaze you.

The newest kit from Master Korabel is the “Secret Vessel” Morel, a wooden submarine designed by a Russian carpenter who offered to build it for Peter the Great in 1718. You can read more about the vessel here.

Other ship model kits include the Cannon Jolle, a gunboat designed for use in coastal defense, the Schooner Polotsk, the Brig Phoenix, and the Deck Boat St. Gabriel. Pre-sewn sail sets are available for each of these, as well as the Double Boat. The Tender Avos kit version we sell includes the pre-sewn sails.

  1. Reblogged this on Ship Modeler and commented:

    A few months ago, I spoke with the owner of Ages of Sail. With the demise of Mamoli and then more recently Artesania Latina, I mentioned the Master Korable line after having seen some details about their kits on Model Ship World.

    When I have more time, I’d really like to take on the cutter rigged tender Avos, or maybe the simpler Double Boat. By the looks of these kits, they’ll all look really good when completed.
