Really surprised at the shipping speed, and updates for delivery. Opened the box at the post office, did a quick inspection of the balsa wood and parts. Everything was in great shape! No damage to any parts. Looking forward to starting the build on this project.

Although I have not yet built this kit after opening it up and checking out all the parts I couldn't be more amazed Vacuum formed plastic parts for painting perfect even for airbrushing, and all the balsa wood is perfectly laser cut and not one damaged piece in my kit. Some of the best quality cut out I have ever seen. I plan to add a simple rc setup and considering a .49 engine gas. I probably wont fly because the beauty of it in the end but I have seen them on youtube flying with electric and such. This is the perfect hobby for my balsa wood needs You must get one of these specially wooden ship builders will enjoy this for a change up.

Kit is extremely complex and requires a great deal of reading and preparation before assembly process. Look for various assembly options, and check out all instruction sheets
