Amati wooden model ship the Egyptian Transport
The added need to get cedar and ebony wood, myrrh and a particular golden alloy, called "electum", pushed the Egyptians to build suitable ships for navigation on the open sea, A bas relief discovered in the King Sahure temple allowed the reconstruction of this model, made enchanting by the particular construction of the hull. Shipbuilders of that era did not use pegs (treenails) but relied on rope to keep their ships afloat. Keel, frames and deck were tightly tied together. This is a Plank-on-frame kit and is accurately reproduced. This Kit includes pre-sewn sails and rigging in five diameters, plus a myriad of wooden and metal ornaments for a museum quality finish. This brand new kit comes with detailed English instructions, and the "Egyptian Transport" is great for builders of all skill levels.
