Beautiful, requires an inordinate amount of time

This is a beautifully shaped model, but everything must be pre-fitted and fiddled with before you even think about gluing. Some parts were missing. With respect to the deck - in some cases, disregard the order outlined in the instructions; work from the outside in; otherwise the space will be too tight and the parts are too tiny. Even though it looks like you should glue all the support members to the deck, don't do it. If you do the central hull pieces won't fit well. Connecting the pullies and rope eyes for the cannons is a hit-and-miss affair; as are the cannon doors. The helm frame parts do not fit the deck sockets. I could go on. That said, I do not regret this purchase because; eventually, it will be completed. I bought it because it was a beautiful example of a late 16th century frigate. I've chopped off just about everything that makes it look like a Pirate Ship, used different colors and a different figurehead. But I would not wish this kit on a friend; everything about it (except lashing the life boat (which was a modification) has been an ordeal. BTW, the large plastic sales dramatically downgrade the model. I intend to chop them off with only the yards remaining. Unless you really love something about the look of this model, I'd leave it alone.
