The Artesania Latina Dutch Fishing Boat Botter Model Kit in 1/35 scale from the wooden ship model range measures 18.70'' (475 mm) long, 14.76'' (375 mm) high and 4.52'' (115 mm) wide. This wooden boat kit is highly realistic with many fine details.
These boats sailed for centuries on the shallow coastal waters of the Zuiderzee. The crew, usually between 2 and 4 men, used to keep the catches alive in a nursery located in the center of the ship. The Zuiderzee was a large inland sea to the north of the Netherlands.
The completion in 1932 of a large dam divided it in two, creating a large inland saltwater lake called Ijsselmeeer and adding the rest of the old inland sea to the Frisian Sea.
After this division no new Botters were built, and the wood and the sails were replaced by steel and motor propulsion. An association for Botter preservation keeps several of them in their original state.
Build your Botter scale model 1/35, a traditional fishing boat from the island of Marken. Its construction by means of false keel and frames approaches the assembly of the model to the construction of the real ship.
The modeling kit contains high precision laser-cut board parts, fine woods, brass, cast iron and fabric. For assembly you can follow our full colour guide step-by-step in four languages, accompanied by the full scale plan of the model.
