Other kits like Master Korabel?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, my english is not good, I like the buildingtechnic in Master Korabels kits but I would like other ships.

I have seen a kit from a german manufacturer, but dont remember the name of the boat or the manufacturer.

If you are thinking of the Kammerlander kits, they are quite different in construction. I think that MK's technique is pretty unique at this point in time, but I doubt it will take long for other manufacturers to adopt it, at least to some degree. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so they say.

There are 2 more manufacturers that make kits similar in construction but they are also Russian and so are the ships they are selling.

Only foreign vessel that might be coming soon is Italian vine transporter. So in regards of ships origin you are out of luck for now .

Otherwise MK has 4 kits of ships plus several kits of smaller craft.

Falkonet has 2 kits of steam launches, 2 viking tipe ships, a 1/24 scale yawl and in development are 2 masted cutter "Uvalen" built for russian prince (similar to French pilot cutters), Peter the Great pleasure yacht "Nataliya" and in a long run schooner Meteor (Baltimore schooner type)

Eskadra has 2 kits out - famous Mercuriy and schooner "Lastochka" from Crimean war

The fishing vessel "HF.31 Maria" by Dusek might be close enough  I think (but not the other Dusek kits  I stand corrected, see Dubz post below 🙂 ).

It has all planking strips pre-cut, along with a lot of other wooden parts pre-cut, and it takes full advantage of photot-etch for detailing. If this is what you are looking for in "similar building technique"?

On Duseks product page you can have a look at the instructions for the kit, on the tab "Download" http://www.dusekshipkits.com/maria-hf31

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
