Aeronaut (3012) Bellissima: Sailing Yacht – Model Boat & Fittings is a semi scale model sailing yacht.
This model is a uniquely beautiful vessel of mahogany construction. The hull is assembled from birch and mahogany plywood in a Depron jig plate. All the plywood parts are supplied laser-cut, which means that assembly can proceed very rapidly. Construction is extremely simple, and even the beginner to model-making will cope without difficulty. Removing the roof provides good access to the internal RC system components as well as the generous cabin interior. The cockpit takes the form of a watertight shell, and the whole assembly can be removed by undoing a single screw. Bellissima is an enlarged version of our Bella sailing boat. Construction of the two models is identical, but the elegant Bellissima is bigger all round.

Length: approx. 50%
Height: approx. 30%

The model kit contains:
Comprehensive building instructions, and all the wooden parts, fittings and sails required to build the boat. Most parts are laser-cut, some die-cut.
