Mediterranean Fishing Boat
Star Hobbies, 1/35 scale
Reviewed by Brett Green
Star Hobbies is an Australian company that designs and manufactures a large range of resin accessories for aircraft, armour, figures, sci-fi, civilian vehicles, railway and more.
Star Hobbies has sent their Mediterranean Fishing Boat for review. There is no scale mentioned on the packaging but it looks closest to 1:35 scale. It will certainly be suitable for 1:32 scale too, and perhaps even as a big boat in 1:48.
The boat is an impressive one-piece casting in blue. The ribs, floor planks and other structural details are all cast in place.
There is almost no clean-up required – a little sanding along the keel line and the boat will be ready to use.
Also note that although it is labelled as Mediterranean, there is no reason it could not be placed in any waterside scene.
Star Hobbies’ Mediterranean Fishing Boat will be a nice centrepiece for a vignette or an accessory for a diorama.
Thanks to Star Hobbies for the samples www.starhobbies.com.au
