  1. Hi all Wanted to put in a review of Spanish frigate diana This is my second build the first being the starter kit amati adventure beginner kit from modellers central . I found it has great plans with step by step instructions,up to 108 pages and then 3 other huge a3 or larger sail , mast and rigging plans double sided . The other thing i liked is heaps of materials eg timbers. Overall i just think this occre kit is great Thanks all. Ps : this is where I'm at.
