Good kit but not for beginners.
By rat1863 January 17, 2015
Like the past review I bought this kit on the promise that it was a beginners kit and while it wasn't all that difficult it's slightly above a beginners level. I have a lot of experience with plastic ship building and I thought this would be a good way to transition from plastic to wood projects and all in all it was. I did however have problems with several of the pieces snapping for no reason. Although none of these issues are visible in the finished product they did however present some problems that had to be jury rigged to correct. In addition to parts snapping for no reason there is also the added difficulty of having to mark and cut some of the pieces by hand. While I don't have a problem with this ( I did make mistakes but they were on me not the kit) I think this might present a challenge for the inexperienced modeler. Overall I think this was a decent kit and I was happy with the finished product but I wouldn't recommend it to beginner modeler and given the patience and detail required I wouldn't recommend it to the age group its labeled for.
