Antares kit with GRP fuselage and laser-cut wooden parts as well as fittings. Further accessories, such as the rigging set and sails, are needed to complete the boat.
The model is certainly not a mass-produced model; although a finished epoxy hull is included in the kit and all wooden parts for the deck and superstructure are also available as laser parts, making construction quick and uncomplicated. The deck is completed completely outside the hull as a separate supporting assembly and only then glued into the hull as a whole. All materials required for construction are included. Only the fittings for rigging the mast, such as brass blocks, shroud tensioners, stainless steel cable, lines are included in the specially supplied rigging set, which is only needed later. For calm, an auxiliary drive has been installed in the model, which is available as an additional accessory set.
Drawings for the sails are included in 1:1. You can either purchase fabric to sew yourself or a finished set of sails. The detailed building instructions, in which each stage of construction is shown in pictures, and also describes the detailed control of the two headsails true to the original, and a detailed building plan make the construction of the model also possible for the non-expert without any problems. The equipment can be equipped with 2 or 3 sailing winches. The winches can also only be installed after the model has been completed.
