Hi Brian,

Yes, the quality of the wood is excellent, all cherry, solid wood mostly in the kit along the lines of the ZHL Le Requin kit. It comes with sail cloth but the sails aren't made. There's rigging line and laser cut blocks. All of the parts are laser cut and of excellent quality. I did a review of the kit on my blog as well as a review of Le Requin. I also built a 1:48 scale laser cut longboat Chinese kit (cost just 22.50 and free shipping) and wrote a 2 chapter practicum on it that costs $20.00 but you get a coupon code for $20.00 off your next purchase. That kit was neat. Each plank was cut to shape so there was nothing to do but glue them on. It has a jig as well to hold the frameowrk in alignment.
