Ages of Sail just received its most recent shipment of fittings and kits from Amati Model of Italy. In this shipment, we received 3 new kits, just released. Two kits are part of a new line of beginner kits called “1st Step”.
1st Step kits are designed for the first time ship modeler, whether young or old. The kits require no special tools to build and work out to be just about 11″ long. There are two kits in this series, the Elizabethan Galleon and the Pirate Ship. Start someone off on the road to ship modeling with one of these kits, or build it as a quick weekend project.
The third new kits from Amati is not specifically designed for beginners, but is one that is relatively simple in design, a Spanish Carrack or Coca. This is an exciting addition to the Amati product line as it represents one of the few model kits of a 15th century ship.
The Coca kit features laser cut frames and keel, double planking, sail cloth, fittings, and 16-page full-color building instructions. The completed 1:60-scale model measures just about 16″ long and high.
