Very nice work, How is the kit as far as quality, wood etc.
It's really not a kit in the strictest sense - the "basic kit" that I purchased consists of three sheets of plans, laser cut plywood (keelplate and bulkheads) and laser cut boxwood (stem post, stern post, keel, rudder and counter timbers). The rest (lumber, fittings etc) I had to source myself.

Nice, very very nice. I have the same and all the goodies. I still need to order a lumber package. For some reason, this thing daunts me. I really like the balsa wood infills. Looking forward to more.

Thanks for you interest Rick. It's really not that difficult model to build. The only thing I had to struggle was tuck stern. The balsa infills are afterthought - after screwing up fairing, sanded off too much. Another advantage, besides fair hull (to the best of my rather limited ability) is that planks don't sag between bulkheads and you can actually see the run of each plank.
