"I Start Early" is a program for the youngest beginner ship modellers compiled at the School of Ship Modeling ZTKDU in Dubrovnik. The program includes work with students from 7 years of age and up.
BATEL is a model on which the youngest advanced students aged 12 and up meet the process of making the rudder and the bending of the strips for the first time. They need to clean the darkened edges from laser cut elements , sand and assemble the elements and glue them. Coloring the model through practice introduces future modelers to the secrets of the process. They glue the laser-cut veneer planking on the model.
This is a completely wooden model. Its length is 33,4cm. The scale is 1:12.
Experienced modelers, you should know that this is a beautiful model and is a real pearl when professionally made. The years do not form boundaries in this project.
The instruction is written in Croatian only. This is exceptional for this model. Other models have instructions written in both English and Italian.
We have prepared videos of the 3D model for you.
