Assemble The Albatros Sailing Ship with this 1:55 Scale Wooden Model Kit from the Universal Series by Constructo.
The Atlantis Initio series is designed for the intermediate builder, and the hull needs to be assembled. This ship is a magnificent scale reproduction of The Albatros sailing ship, which was built in 1899, also known as a North Sea Klipper.It went through a complete restoration in the mid '80s and was recommissioned as a sailing cargo cessel with classification GL 100 A4K, and still sails today! Various types of top-quality woods are used. Complete with quality brass and metal hardware and fittings needed for completion. Wooden deadeyes, channels, grating strips, pin racks and more! Yarn for an authentic rigging appearance. Cotton sails. Large, easy-to-follow plans and simplified pictorial instruction that illustrate every phase of construction (instruction booklet is in 7 different languages).
Very nice kit to build. Wood is nice quality and kit goes together well. Is a bit challenging for true novice but is a great example of plank on bulkheads. Great practice for more complicated construction and requires some effort to get a very nice final product. But worth the effort!!!
