The origin of the Leudo are rather uncertain. According to suppositions probably having a content of truth, the Leudo comes from a type of medieval boat with two masts inclined towards the prow with lateen sails. It afterwards lost the foremast, and was replaced by a bowsprit with jibs, making the manoeuvres easier. The hull has a characteristic egg shape with a very accentuated bending weather conditions, unbearable even for stronger hulls. It was a cargo ship carrying – hardware – agricultural tools – hand-manufactured goods and cloths in the Mediterranean Sea.
Mamoli’s mini kits feature solid hulls that are pre-carved and perfectly shaped. They are well detailed, with fine grained wood dowels for the masts and spars and individual planking strips for the decks. Scaled fittings include metal parts, cotton rigging and silk-screened flags. One to one plans and simple instructions make these an easy 15 to 20 hour kit.
RECOMMENDED for ages 13 and up with adult supervision.
