The Interislander Wooden Model Ferries are a great keepsake for locals, tourists or ship enthusiasts alike. Three models are available, one for each of the current fleet: Kaitaki, Kaiarahi and Aratere. Exclusive to The Great Journeys of New Zealand, these models make memorabilia fun.
Laser cut from MDF, the A5 sized flat pack board comes pre-cut with the design. Simply push out the pieces and assemble using the easy to follow instructions provided. The pieces slot together easily and can be permanently joined with a small spot of PVA glue which is also included in the box.
Constructing the ships is great fun for adults and children alike, though smaller children will need adult supervision as there are some small pieces.
The compact size of the flat pack makes it ideal for mailing or for fitting into an already full suitcase.
When fully assembled the ships measure 220mm in length.
These kit-sets are designed and made in Wellington by local company Abstract Design.
The Interislander Wooden Model Ferries can also be purchased in-store on board the Interislander ferries Kaitaki, Kaiarahi and Aratere.
