Amati Victory Models’ Fifie Build Video

We recently noticed that there’s been a long running build log of the construction of the Fifie from Amati’s Victory Models line. Amati’s kit is a big 1/32-scale model kit of the classic Scottish fishing boat.

The series of Youtube videos consists of 13 parts, plus an intro and a kit unboxing. The final video was posted just last month. This particular build included an RC conversion of the kit, which is clearly possible given the large size of the hull (27.6″), but it wasn’t specifically designed for it, so some modifications are required, which the builder incorporated.

 

Amati’s Fifie is actually one of three Fifie kits we carrie at Ages of Sail. In addition to this one, we also carry Caldercraft’s 1:40-scale Motor Fifie kit, which actually IS designed for RC operation, and a newer 1/64-scale Sailing Fifie kit from Vanguard Models.
