Just completed this kit which I had purchased from ZHL several months ago. It was a real joy to complete, nice working with larger cuts of wood. The directions that came with the kit were not great, no english but lots of photos. The full scale plan sheet was also very good quality. I want to acknowledge the fantastic build log that Uwe put together on this same kit, that was a real life saver. Couldn't have done this without his information and detailed photos. He saved me a ton of head scratching.:) The quality of materials (I upgraded to the cherry version) was fantastic and a real joy to use. The laser cutting was spot on, but char removal did get tedious at points. Bottom line, I am not a great builder by any means, I have fun doing it and try hard. I am very pleased with the result of this kit and highly recommend it to anyone. \\photo1BHR.jpgphoto2BHR.jpgphoto3BHR.jpgphoto4BHR.jpgphoto5BHR.jpgphoto6BHR.jpgThe

Wow !
You did a very good job on this section model - it is looking very good..... BTW: the manufacturer is Unicorn models, ZHL is only the dealer here...
and I am very happy, that I could be of some help with my building log (which is still not finished beacsue of the Le Coureur log)
Great Result Thumbsup Thumbsup
and now? Maybe also the Coureur or one more a section like the Granado?

Uwe, thanks for the nice comments and also again for that fantastic build log. Have just started un boxing Crown models version of HMS Victory in 1:96 scale. Looks like a good quality kit but will be dealing with very small parts again. I will check out the Granado. Thanks for the recommendation
