Its a retrospective)), the model is completed. I am happy to show the "historic" pics))Nice progress! Are all the parts clean lasercut? Ik am happy with my zhl kit and the lasercut parts. Better then the European ones in had.
The model was sent to the competition with 2 sets of plans - chinese and original by Harold Hahn. The hull is the same in both versions. Chinese mfg just used the hull plans which are on the web. The masting and rigging are different. They did not follow Hahn's reconstruction. So I scratched the masting and rigging completely according to the Hahn plans and they were presented as a support and proof. So no issues were arised. NAVIGA guys didn not even believe from the first sight that the model is based on the kit ))My Congratulations to this result and Success!
It is also very important to know, that a model with kit basis from a chinese manufacturer can get a gold medal result at NAVIGA !!!!
May I ask on which plan-basis the judges compared the model?
As I know it is very important in Naviga, that the model is built as accurate as possible compared with documentation on plans etc.
