This model kit is a bit long in the tooth and needs considerable cleaning up. There are several inaccuracies and Lindberg could have added an extra sprue with some more details. The thread provided for the railing is horrible and the stanchions do not go completely to the bow. These boats either had a pair of boat davits or a crane for the life boat at the stern. Anchor chains missing at the bow. The decals however are gorgeous and provide markings for several boats. Overall I would recommend this kit because it is the only option for this kind of boat and with some scratch building can really look awesome.
Out of the box, this can be built into a handsome model but the thread for handrails/rigging must be replaced.
