  1. Hello everyone, this is my fourth kit-build and my first POF build. I couldn‘t resist to buy this one because of its beauty and grace. Some months ago I finished my last build and I thought some time about what to build next. There are a lot of beginner kits but I found it difficult to choose the right „intermediate“ kit. I started the Caldercraft 1:64 Granado kit I had in storage for a long time soon to find out that CAF is designing a 1:48 POF kit of the Granado. So I have put that build on hold until CAF has finished the developement. If it will turn out well, I will eventually start that one. But meanwhile? The Badger is more like an experiment, which will take a lot of time researching and I have to think about every step. How about a nice little side-project, that is challenging enough to keep me busy until CAF‘s Granado will be finished? Having followed the banned kits threat for a while I was afraid about buying a Chinese manufacturer‘s kit because I expected less experience with kits than established European and American companies already have. But CAF is something like a startup and I decided if I won‘t give a talented designer like Tom of CAF a try, other Chinese companies that still sell pirated kits in the first will never get encouraged to chance their attitude. So I ordered the kit, a barrel box and a cutter and got all items three days ago. My first impression was - wow! I have also ordered the Le Coureur book from Ancre and will use it as another source for reference, but it will take some more days to arrive here. James H. already did a nice and substantial kit review, so there is little left to say about the kit. It comes in two medium boxes, but both stuffed with lasercut wooden parts, stripe wood, accessoires and plans. As far as I can see, the quality of all parts is excellent, although cherry is not my favorite wood this might be my first kit it won‘t be necessary to substitute any wood. The keel is to be assembled first and then the cradle has to be done next. I made a small step first to assemble the bottom of the cradle and fixed that to a plain MDF-board with some screws. Will begin assembling the keel within the next days. Stay tuned...
  2. Hi all, I'm actually waiting on a couple of small sheets of parts from CAF, and those should be here pretty soon, courier dependent. The kit itself landed last week in under 7 days from China, via TNT/FedEx. Pretty quick for these times we currently live in. If you haven't already checked out my review for this kit, please do so here: I still need to dump my photos from camera yet, and I'll wait until I have the first double frame complete. Give me a couple of days or so Jim
