Does anybody have this kit ??? I cannot find any built report on our web . I like to know the quality of the kit in general terms thanks
I bought this Rattlesnake Kit last fall and was very impressed and pleased with it.
As to these claims that Chinese manufacturers copy, steal or pirate the work of other manufacturers, maybe so.
But, aside from the subject matter, I don’t see that this Rattlesnake kit is a copy of any previous 1/50 or 1/48 blank-on-bulkhead model of the Rattlesnake. As to using plans that are in the public domain to design a kit, I don’t see that as an issue.
So what am I missing here?

Just checked out the kit from China that was linked above - have to say the kit looks good and I do love the keel / bow detail rather than just a piece of solid ply going around! Exactly what I am drawing up at present for the Lancia Armata. Just hoping I can find some ref material as to how it would be on a 10m boat !?! :)
