Venetian Gondola

posted in: Ships | 0

Simple and complete kit by Amati, with instructions in Italian (though the plans are good enough and with a bit of experience you won’t have any problems even if you don’t speak any Italian). Suitable for beginners. I added some details of my own.

TECHNICAL DATA

Technical details

Name Venetian Gondola
Description Model of this typical venetian boat, as they were in the 19th century.
Design Amati
Escale 1:20
Measures (mm) Length: 550, Width: 75, Height: 80

Comments Quite simple model, easy and fun to make and, in my opinion, suitable for beginners. The kit and the instructions are very complete and clear, but, in Italian.
To make a more realistic model, I made a base imitating the waters of the Venetian Laguna, and I added two personal details: The “stick” where the gondola is tied (scale reproduction of one I captured during a visit to Venezia) and a “gondolero” made in painted clay by one of my daughters.
