This ship is the most intricate model kit I have ever seen! There are wooden planks to lay down individually for the siding and the deck! This is a model that requires time and a lot of patience. It is sure beautiful though.

Have no experience with these kits but this is a nice kit. No worries yet everything is included in the box including extra material. That was a nice surprise and I will definitely recommend these kits to anyone. I would talk with experienced ship builders before starting. I will purchase more of these kits soon. A plus Latina!

This was my first wooden ship project. I found the it both challenging and rewarding. I do think that the project required a great amount of skill. I would not have attempted this advanced level kit as my first ship if I did not have decades of handy man skills at my disposal. Or I would have purchased a simpler kit to begin with. An example of skills and tools required is the tapering of the masts. One mast for example was originally 8mm in diameter and needed to be tapered to 6 mm at the other end. I used a belt sander to accomplish the task. The instructions suggested it be tapered by sanding by hand. That would have taken a long time. Also there was a lot of rigging that needed to be threaded with a needle. So if you have a hard time working with small objects than this might not be the project for you.
There was not a single piece of plastic included in the entire kit which is just awesome this day and age. The included flag is a little cheesy looking. It would be nice to have a real cloth flag as the sails are made out of cloth. My ship did not come out perfectly but it looks beautiful and I am sure only an experienced shipbuilder could spot the imperfections.

The instructions are good except that some part numbers were incorrect which caused some confusion. I also found that some parts were missing, but I am a woodworker and was able to duplicate them from the plans..

This is a nice kit and it requires time and patience. The instructions are good and easy to follow. I would have like a planked deck, but everything else is detailed and creates a wonderful model.

Received the kit in a timely matter. It was contained in a large Amazon box with a lot of packing, but the original box of the kit was crushed. Fortunately no parts were broken.

Happy with the shipping time, took only a few days. After unboxing and reviewing the parts list it seems everything is inside. Parts seem to be well made and nice looking. BUT, there is a problem with the instructions. No blueprint type drawings at all, only one large two sided color drawing that too me has way too little helpful information. The instruction booklet has only 3 or 4 pages in English. Most of the instructions are in a small color pamphlet, nice looking, but again lacking in detail instructions. I would say that you should find an Unboxing site on Youtube and see for yourself.But I would say that, all in all, I look forward to getting started, it look so much fun.......One last thing the price on Amazon seems to jump all over the place. From $79 to $149 ( mine was $88 ) so I would keep an eye on that.

Tis a fairly complex project for a first timer. I probably should have started with something a little easier. Instructions were good but could have been better at times. Some parts were mislabeled at times. Once or twice some parts were shown but no instructions were given. By not giving up and spending time studying and also having some limited nautical knowledge I am getting the projected completed and am proud of it. I am in the homestretch and am working through some very confusing rigging.

Excellent kit. I haven't started it yet because I'm still working on my viking ship. They both are double plank hulls which takes some work.. Will have to find a place to set it. The mast limits where you can sit it. They do collect dust but a can of air cleans them quite well.
