Model builders who are both advanced or growing their skills will find a great experience awaiting them as they embark on their ship-building journey with this trimaran sailboat.
Anyone who appreciates the complexity, creativity, craftsmanship and skill that goes into a great build kit will immediately recognize the quality provided by this one-of-a-kind project set. The boat itself comes together to form a striking finished product. This is not only because of the model’s realistic and exquisite design but also because it all starts with natural wooden pieces precisely cut from high-grade and sturdy plywood.
While your skill and ingenuity will be on full display as you construct this UGears sailboat, the kit helps to make your building project a stress-free success thanks to clear and easy-to-understand instructions that are conveniently provided in 11 different languages: English, Spanish, French, Russian, German, Italian, Chinese, Polish, Korean, Ukrainian and Turkish. The lure and excitement of a new model-building set are hard to ignore for a dedicated hobbyist, and the Trimaran Merihobus allows for getting started immediately. The pieces have been expertly cut so they’re ready to go, and your new kit requires no special tools, harmful chemicals or glues to complete the assembly. The model boat set complete with color-coded templates to make the building process simple and incredibly easy to follow.
You’re sure to enjoy the beautiful nautical details of this realistic trimaran model in miniature. The boat’s hulls, frames, rigging and bulkheads are on full display so that once completed, the skeleton-style trimaran can be viewed and appreciated in its full glory. The realistic details of the sailboat are startling and impressive to take in, but the mechanical components are truly what set the UGears model ship apart from others.
Connecting the stern master wheel and the ship’s pontoons, sturdy ropes help to steer the trimaran with the rear rudder blade. Either take in both the mast’s fore staysail and mainsail or let them out for a look that conveys the sailboat is ready for a day of adventuring at sea. A simple pull of a lever operates the ship’s sail booms. The boat’s rigging is comprised of a thin, but strong, threading in white that keeps the look of the model clean and free of unnecessary distractions.
The Trimaran Merihobus allows you to put your own stamp of creativity on your project as the finishing touch is a flag you can design yourself; it’s simple when you use one of the included templates. The ship’s hoists and winch allow you to raise your vessel’s flag and prepare it for adventure.
