We continue on this post showing our modelers friends each fishing ship model in wood from our catalog. On this time, we are going to talk about the new modeling kits of this type of boat that Artesanía Latina has created for 2022 and the best sellers. On the previous publication, we left it in the fishing boat models for amateurs with at least an intermediate level of skills and knowledge. We go on, then, with that degree of difficulty in the construction of the miniature replicas with one of the two novelties of this year. Afterwards, we will review the traditional scale model of fishing boats for advanced modelers.
FISHING SHIP MODEL IN WOOD: FRENCH TUNA BOAT MARIE JEANNE
How beautiful! Artesanía Latina modeling team has done a great job to present this year that is almost about to finish one of our novelties. They have completely redesigned the wooden fishing ship model of Marie Jeanne tuna boat (22175), the traditional 1:50 scale French boat that currently delights fans of naval modeling. We have exponentially improved its assembly experience, being friendlier, thanks also to its high-quality parts. By the way, this model is perfect for those fans with an intermediate level and for those who wish to have a first contact with rigging. Look at the resulting model!
Regarding the contents of the ship modeling kit with the fishing ship model Marie Jeanne, which has sailed since 1900 until 1950, these have the highest quality standards. Parts that fit together perfectly: board pre-cut by high-precision laser, hardwoods, photo-etched, brass and cast iron parts, as well as hand-cut and hand-sewn cotton sails ready to be placed. As a gift, the modeler can display the model thanks to its wooden exhibition base with a metal name plate. It can be illuminated with LED Lighting Set (27590), sold separately.
