Super smooth planking m8! Keep it up. Is this a good kit with wood and carvings? Have to use lot of my own wood because of bad quality or not enough wood from the kit. Also plastic carvings break easy when i get them out the sealed plastic. Wanted to by your kits next but have to think about it now
Hey Pat, this kit is probably similar to yours. It's a good kit at this price point but I would save someBanknote-USD for the more expensive kits.

Nice planking Mike, you clearly see that you take your time to do it right, I know it's a repetition what other colegas say, but if it's right, one has to say

Outstanding Planking. All I can say is that I wish my planking would turn out like this. I have never got the hang of it yet. Fantastic Mike !!!

Does this kit differ greatly from the Sergal version? I find Sergal kits supply a great amount of timber.

Cheers

Hi Jim. You can contact him on the ZHL web site. www.modelshipbuilder.com. I believe he is a member of the forum also now. I purchased my kit off eBay. I was hesitant of ordering direct so I spent a little more for shipping going eBay but next kit I would buy direct. From time of my order to delivery was 9 days which I thought was pretty good.

Norway is kalling, i had a loock on Max`s ZHL site, www.modelshipbuilder.com, i belive its in the usa.
In the future i also vant to bye this ZHL model, but i also vant to by this model Direct from the produser zhl.
I think there wil be extra shippingkost if i order from Kina and by a middelman in Usa and to Norway.

Hi Vossy, I believe the kits are very similar. I think the Sergal version you need to cut out the gunports as the ZHL version has pre cut and placed ports on ply. The stern construction is a little different. I believe the Sergal version wins hands down on the decorations, ZHL's need painted and seem a little thick. As for the timber it is well supplied but the planking for the first layer had quite a few miss cut pieces which left me short. The rigging seems to be very similar. The plans are ok but the instructions are confusing. The instructions are combined between the older version and the new version which lead to the confusion.

This is Max's web page. It's in China and will ship from China. I ordered on EBay which shipped from the same place in China.

For final clarification:
ZHL is a chinese manufacturer.
Max - he is chinese - is the owner of the company
The given web-page is the webpage of the company ZHL and Max - the web-page is located in China
http://www.woodmodelboatbuilder.com/
Max is a very reliable seller, very correct, fast and safe dealer.
A lot of our members bought already from him (also other kit like from CAF - Max can organize them)
Postage will be from China worldwide - postage usually with DHL in one week - very fast
Very good packaging - so safe transport

Thanks for the feedback. Question - who will tell you how to spend rudder-pendant from Soleil Royal?
