Scale 1:64 • Length: 21 inches • Entry level kit
The cutter Lady Nelson was designed for fast speed, adopting an unusually large spread of sail for the size of the vessel, and deploying both fore and aft plus square sails on a single mast. Cutters excelled at patrol and dispatch duties, but they were not suitable for close inshore work due to their deep draught. Amati's Lady Nelson kit has been designed with the beginner/intermediate modeler in mind; it's an ideal introduction to the art of plank-on-bulkhead construction. Includes laser-cut birch plywood and walnut parts, metal and wood fittings, hardwood display base and brass pedestals.
