Hello everybody, comrades! I want to show you my wooden steam boat from the Italian manufacturer Amati. At the moment it is the only wooden ship at my “pier”.

I was building it already quite long ago, about 2-3 years ago, I can’t remember exactly.

During the construction I often felt like I was at school at technology lessons, where I was sawing something, sand-papering, there were some wood-blocks, strips of board, rails… :) All in all, it was pretty funny.

The content of the box of the ship model

Generally speaking, I was building this cruise ship model without problems, strictly following the instructions, well, somewhere not very strictly… In short, I was building from a box. And in the box, actually, there were wood-blocks, strips of board, rails, and a pair of veneers with laser cut parts. And another big piece of wood which manufacturers have decided, apparently not bothered, to call the housing. In the set there were a lot of different small things ready to be used (eyelets, hooks, pipes, windows, etched fences and other things of metal and wood) that I personally was very pleased with. After the construction a lot of it all was left, and all sorts of different bars, too. It will be useful.

The only thing that upset me was the lack of a stand in the set, and I still haven’t made anything worthy myself – the ship turned out to be heavy, and nothing suitable was found at hand.

Additional materials I used for construction

During the construction I used the glue Tait Bond (American PVA) and Zap-a-gap (US superglue, which immediately glues everything, from metal to fingers).

I was painting with a brush, with Tamia paint (for my stupidity), spent a lot of paint.

Incidentally, on the box the manufacturer marked the scale as 1:150, but, IMHO, something is not right here.

In short, that’s what happened. Beat me. :)
