I have been looking at the kit, it is a good quality kit. I checked the price on-line $72.00 not a bad price for what’s in the box and this is a large ship a 21-inch hull. I will be replacing the sails and ratlines and making my own. The LHS here carries a large variety of wooden ship building parts(Colpar‘s), a great plus for me. A real plus, the wood deck planks are too scale. I will also replace the anchors, nothing wrong with the plastic ones, I just like brass anchors level of detail.
We will see how this goes, as the last time I build a sailing ship was many years ago the Revell Constitution.
This will be a long project.
A little slow to start with, until after are IPMS High Plains show as I need to put the final touches on other models ready for the contest and get all the kits priced.
First off, the hull, I will be drilling out all the portholes and inserting clear styrene.
