A great Ship
For any one who is new to wooden ship building, this is an excellent ship both in size and quality You will need some previous knowledge of building models (eg. plastic airfix etc) but i have had no problems so far. This kit boasts brass fittings, canons, quality woods such as lime and walnut, and very easy to follow instructions. A great value buy for any modeller, begginer or advanced!
