EGYPTIAN TRANSPORT

ship model The need to get cedar and ebony wood, myrrh and a particular golden alloy, called "electum", pushed the Egyptians to build suitable ships for navigation on the open sea, so that they could reach Syria or cross the Red Sea. A bas relief discovered in the King Sahure temple allowed the reconstruction of this model, made enchanting by the particular construction of the hull.

Plank-on-frame kit is one of the most interesting we offer, as it accurately reproduces this ancient construction technique. Pre-cut parts and a 16 page instruction book with full scale plans make building easy. Kit also includes pre-sewn sails and rigging in five diameters.

Grand Banks 46' Cruiser

ship modelFounded by Robert J. Newton in 1956, American Marine, Ltd. built custom sailboats and motor yachts on Junk Bay, Hong Kong. In 1962, Newton commissioned Kenneth Smith, a well-known marine architect to design a diesel powered cruiser along the lines of a trawler. Inspired by this design, began production of a line of boats that became known as Grand Banks.

Today, this design is recognized as the Grand Banks Heritage Series. Originally built of wood, construction was changed to fiberglass at a new factory in Singapore in 1973. With its walk-around decks, aft cockpit and roomy interior, the Grand Banks 46 Classic is one of the most desirable models that Grand Banks ever built.

Amati’s kit features a fiberglass hull with laser cut planking, wooden decks, metal, brass and resin fittings. Laser cut wooden cabin is complete with detailed interior. The finished model is as eye-catching as the real boat. And, just like the real boat, it’s made for cruising with the addition of radio control equipment.

Greek Bireme

ship model Based on a sculpture in the Louvre in Paris, Amati's model is a faithful reproduction of a typical Greek bireme. A fast and fearsome battleship, the bireme was manned by 44 oarsmen working two banks of oars. The protruding bow was a useful tool for ramming enemy ships.

Keel and frames are pre-cut for trouble-free assembly. Hardwood and metal fittings and accessories are highly detailed for an exact replica of the original vessel. Rigging line, sail material and pennant are also included. Clear plans and easy instructions make building a pleasure.

Greek Galliot

model shipThe Greek war of Independence (1821 - 1827) is mainly known for the naval fight of Navarino. That war was characterized by the numerous combats of the Greek privateers against the Turkish ships. These galliots were very swift, with shallow draft. They could hide inside the narrow gulfs of the Aegean Islands, and then attack the Turkish ships.

Amati's kit is very detailed, and contains all wooden and metal fittings and accessories, pre-cut keel and frames, instructions and construction plans.

THE BOMB VESSEL GRANADO

Originally built as a sloop by the great naval architect Thomas Slade, who also designed the H.M.S. Victory, Granado was launched on June 20, 1742. She worked at intelligence gathering and intercepting smugglers and privateers. With the impending Seven Years' War, the Admiralty converted her to a bomb vessel in 1765. As a bomb vessel she performed her duties admirably and ended her career with the close of the Seven Years' War in 1763.

Amati's Granado is an accurate scale replica, based on original Admiralty plans still in existence. Double-planked kit uses laser-cut birch for keel and bulkheads, high quality walnut for timberheads, rail supports, rudder and other wooden parts. Fittings package consists of walnut belaying pins, blocks and deadeyes, gilded metal canon, brass swivel guns, blackened metal anchor and three diameters of rigging line. Decorations include cast metal stern ornamentation and figurehead, brass strops and pintles, pillars and quarter badges, plus many intricately photo-etched brass detailing. Seven sheets of one-to-one plans, illustrated English instructions and parts list facilitate in building a fine model. Wooden display cradle is also included.

THE BOMB VESSEL GRANADO
By Peter Goodwin.
Built as a floating siege engine able to withstand the recoil of shell-firing mortars, the Granado was one of twelve bomb vessels supplementing the depleted British fleet at the outbreak of the War of Jenkins' Ear in 1739.

This book begins with a brief description of the development of bomb vessels, from the early "galiote a bombe" built in 1682 to the World War II monitors used for coastal bombardment, and continues with an in-depth description of the Granado, including a summary of the ship's career, and more than 250 detailed illustrations.

The book also provides insights into fictional hero Jack Aubrey's first command, the Sophie, a 14-gun brig-sloop with a quarterdeck and stern windows.

First published in 1989, this reprint includes a new large-scale fold-out plan.

H.M.S. FLY
Swan Class Sloop 1775

MODEL SHIPThe British Admiralty commissioned a sixth rate Swan Class sloop in August of 1775. The keel was laid in January, 1776 and H.M.S. Fly slid off the launching ways on September 14, 1776. She displaced 300 tons, measured 97' and 7" on deck and carried a crew of 125. Sixteen cannon and 16 swivel guns served as armament. Sleek hull lines and lavish ornamentation contributed to her beauty. Not much remains about her career history, except that she captured two French privateers. She was lost off the coast of New Foundland in 1802.

Other wooden parts are walnut and basswood.

H.M.S. Vanguard
74 Gun Ship of the Line

This 74 gun Ship Of The Line was Nelson’s Flagship at the famous Battle Of The Nile on 1st/2nd August 1798. Nelson's Vanguard was designed by Slade (of Victory fame) and was one of fourteen 3rd rate 74 gun ships which formed the Arrogant class. The ship was ordered on 9th December 1779 and the keel laid down at Deptford on 16th October 1782. During this time, Britain was not at war so her build went ahead very slowly, being launched on 6th March 1787.

This superbly detailed kit from Victory Models has been designed and researched using the latest information and technologies available, making the kit very easy to build with no sacrifice to even the finest detail. As with all Chris Watton designs, the kit features many of his innovations, like the pre-cut gun port patterns (eliminating the need to laboriously mark out and hand cut each port, proper 3D paneling detail, ultra-realistic chain plates, a fully detailed upper gun deck, photo-etched window frames which can be glazed, easy to follow step by step instructions and drawings and even an optional sail set complete with very detailed drawings

The materials included in the kit are only the very best available - highest quality grade birch plywood, walnut plywood and walnut sheet. Photo etched brass sheets which include the minutest detail - this kit is truly the new benchmark for period model kits for price, quality, ease of construction and presentation. Accept no imitations! As a huge bonus there will be three options in the box. You can make HMS Vanguard or HMS Bellerophon or HMS Elephant! That's right!! Option 1 being HMS Vanguard, option 2 being HMS Bellerophon and option 3 being HMS Elephant, and for each option there will be included in the box: specific casting parts; figureheads; armament; etc.!!

The kit includes the following:

Laser cut wooden parts throughout. Many photo etched brass detail sheets that include window frames, deadeye strop/chainplate fittings, monograms and flintlock detail for the cannons, footrope stirrups and other fine mast and yard detail, gunport scuttles, hinges – the list is endless. There are no less that twenty full size plans, which include very easy to follow rigging detail. Sail detail is also included, along with sail cloth if you wish to rig your model with main sails.

The copper plates for below the waterline are of a completely new design. They are so accurate that there is a left and right side to the plates, and there are no over protruding nail heads, everything is scaled at 1:72nd.

Accompanying the plans is a 31 page fully illustrated building manual, taking you through every stage of the hull construction. There is also a full English instruction booklet, describing every detail of each stage of the main construction, along with histories of the three vessels that are included. Included with the kit are option packs to build HMS Elephant and HMS Bellerophon, as well as Vanguard. There is a set of finely cast figureheads and stern decoration for each version. The plans also include suggested color schemes for each vessel.

Mercury

ship modelThe Russian 20 gun brig Mercury was laid down in Sevastopol on January 28, 1819. She was designed as a patrol ship to guard the Northern Caucasus coast. Built of Crimean oak, with a shallow draught and equipped with oars, the Mercury was launched on 7 May 1820 and broken up on November 9, 1857.

The Mercury fought in many important naval battles during her career; the most notable being when Mercury (commanded by lieutenant A. Kazarsky) and two other ships were sailing back home from the Anatolia coast and faced a large Turkish fleet. Due to light winds Mercury was not able to escape (she was not a rapid ship), while two other russian ships went ahead. Two turkish SHIPS OF THE LINE engaged Mercury into an apparently hopeless battle, which, however the Russian crew decided to make a bold stand. After few hours of heavy fighting, the much smaller and massively out matched (on paper) Russian brig, maneuvering both under sail and oars, had severely damaged the rigging of turkish ships (dismasting at least one of them) and thus forced them to retreat. It is recorded that after the battle, a navigator of one the Turkish ships made a comment praising Mercury for her gallantry and strength, and the captain for his bravery;

“If in the great deeds of ancient or our times there are the feats of bravery, so this act put the others in the shade and the name of a hero should be wrote by the gold letter in the shrine of glory: the captain was Kazarsky, and the name of this brig was “Mercury””

Mercury is one of the most famous vessels of the Russian Navy, and Amati have researched this vessel as much as possible to make it as accurate and well detailed as it can be.

The Mercury kit includes laser cut wooden frames, keels and decks; double planking for the hull; metal fittings and brass photo-etched parts. Plans and instructions are included as well as a laser cut wooden stand.
