Description

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. 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. Our collections come in both pre-owned and brand new condition meaning you can find the right deal for you! Once dispatched you will receive a notification and the item will then be delivered in the next 1-2 working days.

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.Check out our extensive range of ziplines, shuttles, cabins, gondolas, piste bullies, snow cannons and much more below! 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. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. These long, narrow boats are traditionally painted black, and they are propelled by a single oarsman using a long, flat paddle.

The first written records of the gondola date back to the 14th century, but it is likely that they were in use for several centuries before that. Inseparably linked to the city of Venice, of which it is the most famous symbol, the gondola is the most famous boat in the world, the most elegant and the most sophis- ticated and, due to its characteristics of manoeuvrability and speed, it was the Venetian boat best adapted to the transport of persons before the advent of the motorised craft.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). 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. Contrary to popular belief, the gondola is never poled like a punt as the waters of Venice are too deep. We recommend re-using the packaging the item was sent in, if this is not possible you need to ensure the item will be well protected and kept dry in transit. We believe model making is not just a pastime, but also an experience to share with friends, siblings, children and grandchildren.
