Discover one of the jewels of ship modelling, which will allow you to enjoy marvellous moments and relive the age in which these majestic ships sailed the oceans. The reproduction of the model is faithful to the original.
This is a type of fishing with a firmly routed tradition throughout the Mediterranean, although particularly numerous off the coast of Catalonia, at night and using lights, from whence the name bots de llum (light boats).
These boats, around 16 feet in length are usually crew by two men and are mainly used for fishing mackerel and sardine, although they can be used for any other fish or crustaceans that might be attracted by the light shining down from the large gas-lit lanterns. One of their particular characteristics are the two large stabilizers escuas to limit the rocking of the wave swell, and the replacement of the helm with two ropes that operate the rudder through the lantern support.
Our model kits will provide you with all the elements necessary to ensure the reality of your model ship, down to the smallest imaginable naval detail. We hope that you will enjoy your love of ship modelling with the 'Bot de llum Calella', a splendid model ship that will provide you with lengthy periods of creative leisure.
It is a good boat for introducing yourself to ship modeling.
