Description

A sumptuary law of Venice required that gondolas should be painted black, and they are customarily so painted now. I don’t have much information about the old kit other than the scale and that it was a model of a gondola of 1882, which had a little cabin for the passengers. After the elimination of the traditional felze—possibly in response to tourists complaining that it blocked the view—there survived for some decades a kind of vestigial summer awning, known as the "tendalin" (these can be seen on gondolas as late as the mid-1950s, in the film Summertime). Our collections come in both pre-owned and brand new condition meaning you can find the right deal for you!

The gondola is completely painted in black, a colour requested by a decree of the Magistrate of the Pomp (16th century) intended to limit the excessive luxury used by the noble and rich to adorn their own boats. Originally, they were used for everything from transportation of goods to ferrying people around the city.Until the early 20th century, as many photographs attest, gondolas were often fitted with a "felze", a small cabin, to protect the passengers from the weather or from onlookers. During checkout please make sure that all boxes marked with an asterix are filled in, if a box isn't relevant to you then please enter a dash or dot. The paint should now be good enough (after more than 5 times redoing it) so we can start with the pillows and decoration. Whatever your age or experience level, you’ll be able to find something to pique your interest at Hobbies.

Dumas is famous for quality building kits, the Junior Modeler Collection is designed to be easy to build while still offering up lots of charming details. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. This asymmetry causes the gondola to resist the tendency to turn toward the left at the forward stroke.

Contrary to popular belief, the gondola is never poled like a punt as the waters of Venice are too deep.Once you've earned a reward, it will remain in your rewards account until you're ready to redeem it.
