Box arrived today

post-622-0-43680800-1365077515_thumb.jpg

 

as you can see the boxes (2 on top of eachother) are quit damaged as was mentioned by the seller.

post-622-0-03331400-1365077518_thumb.jpg

 

at first glance none of the pieces inside are damaged . mostly due to the fact that there is plenty of space in the boxes and everything actualy fits in one box

 

as usual i started with markign and counting the parts

 

OcCre does not make this easy as there are 2 seperate numberings going from 1 to over 200 with some parts coverd in both numberings

 

after a first count of premade wood and metal parts i have 1 part missing and 2 others lacking the needed quantity

i wil let the store wher i bought it know and that i will email them a detailed describtion of the missing parts this weekend

 

the instructions consists of a booklet with colour pictures covering the hul and deck furniture assembly (first numbering)

the book wiht the text going with these pictures is in spanish so i wil need to see if an english translation is available (if not with online translators and a bit of understanding of the language i have i should get a decent translation myself)

 

finaly there are 23 A3 plans stapled together covering masts and rigging (the second numbering)

 

both instructions seem to be an improvement from the AL instructions i have seen so far but the double numbering is a bit stupid

Hi Adrieke,

 

That's a nice kit you've got there!

I have looked it myself to make it so i will follow you with this one also.

When you are missing parts ,maybe you can send OcCre an e-mail and they will send it.

I was missing a few parts from my other builds from OcCre and they send it right away!

welcome Sjors,John and Jeff

 

Sjors i had contacted the seller before to make sure they will get any missing parts . They where fine with that but said it could take a while as they have to rely on importer and OcCre but i wont be starting her yet anyway

 

and i hope i wont be pushing your patience for when i actualy start the build as i have to finish of the King first and be well on my way with the endeavour before i cna make room for her on my workbench

Hi Adrieke, I've just made a reservation for a chair in the front.

Why do you want to finish the King first, you can work on both ships, no problem ;).

Good luck !!

Better to find out now rather than a year down the line.  Hope they provide what you need ASAP.

You once more proved how important stocktaking is before starting your built. Hope you will have your missing parts soon.

Like Augie said, better to check to make sure you have everything now and if anything is missing contact the company to get what you need before you start.There seems to be a lot of stuff missing, hope it doesn't take that long to get what is missing, you might be better off contacting "OcCre" right off the bat and this way maybe you can get the missing pieces faster then going through the place you bought the kit from ( take out the middle man ). Wish you the best of luck, most company's take care of the customers when this happens.

wel so far half of the kits i have bought had parts missing but this is definately the worst

 

i wil first try through the seller . give them the opportunity to show how good their customer service is

 

as i will not start this build for awhile i can wait for the parts no rush at all :)

Hi Adrieke,

 

If you need the email address from OcCre, let me know.

Was the box open or closed when you received the package?

I'm mean then the box from OcCre.

the box was sealed in plastic and the 3 plastic boxes wiht parts inside where all taped shut too.

I have the Occre Endeavour which I haven't opened yet. I guess I should open it and inventory the parts.

yes Jeff i think it wise to check any kit from any manufacturer . i know its a time consuming and sometimes dificult task. especialy if you not only check the premade parts but make sure that the supply of wood /thread/wire is enough.

Hi Adrieke,

 

I' ve send a few monkey's your way…...

With my San Ildefonso i also have not an English translation.

I ask OcCre about it and they said….no!

So I'm "reading" the pictures and it works just fine.

If needed I can use Google translation.

Not the hole line but a few words.

Otherwise it is Chinese to me  :)

HI Sjors

 

yes the step by step pictures are pretty good but my mind tells me i need to be thorough and read the text too just in case i miss something important

i have plenty of time and will do a few photos at a time during my lunchbreak at work :)

Wow, thats a lot of missing parts, Amigo.  I'd throw in more spanish but strangely I only know the word that are food related. I think inventory of parts is my worse hated part of building but your experience shows just how much it is necessary.

 

Reminds me of the time I was working at the packing house and did inventory with a guy that was dyslexic. Maybe he's working at OcCre now and counted your parts. ;)
