Note: We originally posted this yesterday. But our posts get put onto our Facebook page automatically, and unfortunately, when talking about how things are getting back to normal, we mentioned the word see-oh-vee-eye-dee. We have to put the word here phonetically, so that Facebook doesn’t catch it and limit our ability to share the post. We’re not going to use the “c” word here and hope it works better this time!
So, as the Summer quickly approaches, more and more of us are able to get out and enjoy the outdoors. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon ship modeling! Take it outdoors with these great RC kits we’ve just brought in from Aero-Naut of Germany.
These Aero-naut kits are all designed for RC operation. Some feature wooden hulls and some have plastic hulls. But, all will allow you to install your own choice of radio control equipment.
We currently have sixteen kits to choose from, from sport boats and fishing boats, to workboats and battleships. And, all of the kits we sell include the fittings. So, it’s not necessary to buy a separate fittings set.
Take a look at just some of the Aero-Naut products we now carry…
1:200-scale Battleship Bismark measures a little over 49″ long.
The Victoria Luxury Yacht

Those of you who want to add some nice details to your model without going out and buying specialty shaped strips of wood or brass should take a look at these two tool sets from Artesania Latina.
Micro Shapers Set A
Micro Shapers are scrapers, each with 15 to 16 pre-cut specialty bead molding shapes. There are two sets available, and each set contains 3 different shapers, you just have to cut them loose from the sheet.
Micro Shapers Set B
To use them, you simply scrape lightly against the appropriate sized strip wood. This is how to add fine detailed elegance to your ship model.
Artesania Latina has even created a nice little Youtube video, illustrating how to use them.
We carry each of these sets for $12.99, plus tax and shipping. Check them out, along with the whole range of Artesania Latina’s specialty ship modeling tools here at Ages of Sail . Ω
We recently found this great, simple video with tips for getting the best results when taking photos of your models using a black background. This video was put together by the very talented photographer and ship modeler Olha Batchvarov.
With these new tips on photographing your models, we hope you’ll try them out, then send us photos of your completed models, so we can share them here! Ω
