They say first impressions are everything. This was the first thing I saw when I opened the outer box which had no damage. Below is the part of the outer box that was adjacent to the torn piece above.

Disappointing to say the least, but this is what I received from Ages of Sail. If I had seen this on a shelf in the store I would not have purchased it, not without a discount.

Moving on...this will be photos with minimal text.

Besides the box, nothing else seems to have been damaged-that I have seen so far. The box did not have any type of clear plastic covering it. The lid wasn't taped nor secured in any other fashion, it lifted off easily.

Inside it is organized nicely.

Included is a small boat, a model in itself.

Next is the package containing the sails and flags.

The plastic boxes containing the anchors, cannon, blocks and miscellaneous other items.

The planking. It is a single layer of planking. Basswood that must be painted and stained if you wish to match the box photos.

Despite the initial disappointment this kit has grown on me, I can't wait to get started on it. I just wanted to put something up so others could see what this company has-I wasn't able to find much real information on Disar Models.

Looking past the box it looks like a quality kit. Pre sewn sails nicely done

Thank you everyone for the warm welcomes, greatly appreciated!

Tommy I do like the kit. It's my first so I'm unable to give a comparison for quality but I do feel it is pretty good.

Latest during the building of the model you will find out - or when you build the second model you can compare between both......
But it is looking good what you showed to us - most important is that you have fun during and with the modeling
