Probably the best of the Italian kit manufacturers, Amatis kits are of excellent quality.
Kit specifications include die or laser cut wood parts, a full set on high quality fittings and where applicable brass finish castings. Plans consist of the usual profile and plan views and English instructions are also included.
For the modeller who doesn't have the time to construct one of the wooden hulled range, a number of kits in Amati's range have pre-formed hulls.
