Technical data Scale: 1:30, Length: 700 mm Height: 540 mm Width: 270 mm The kit 1 x Instruction Booklet 1 x Translation Booklet (Spanish, English, French, German, Italian) 1 x Big printed poster of the 1:1 Modell 4 x Sheets of lasercut wood (plywood, iroko wood, mansonia wood) Various dowels for masts and yards Various strips of wood Various Rope and all needed small parts (blocks, Pole, Chains, Fittings etc.) Flags All parts of the kit are stored safely and tidily in the box. For the small parts there is even a great plastic box. Let's look deeper at this kit and start with the perfectly lasered plywood And we go on with the other lasered parts. A nice collection of nice unusual wood. Sharp edges, no splinter. I really like that. For the masts and yards we get very nice dowels. The quality of the wood is excellent! The rope The Flags You even get pre-sewn sails Let's check the smaller parts of this nice kit. The massive guns are allready blackened More smaller parts. Paperwork. Essential for ever good kit are the instructions and plans. The instructions are in 5 different languages. Spanish, english, french, german and italian. Last but not least there is one big poster showing the modell in 1:1. Conclusion This kit is a gem. A wonderful example of how small, dedicated companies with a lot of love for detail can develop wonderful, affordable, new innovative model kits these days. The choice of the really first-class and unusual woods from controlled felling - I like this environmental protection thought - connected with the great illustrated instructions - they do fulfil their task well and leave few to no questions unanswered - round this kit off. I personally would have had gladly still another classical blueprint thereby but it's not really missing or needed. All parts are really high quality and you can feel the attention made to details in this kit. I can't say for sure if its a beginner or intermediate kit but either way it is worth to build it. Great job done by this small spanish company! Highly recommended! And if not available in the states ask your prefered shop to get it 🙂 Disarmodel currently lists this model for €85, and that represents really good value for money for this nice kit. Honestly we think it is too cheap 🙂 Impressions of the build model.

Dear MSW, Please may I introduce myself as a newcomer to this forum. I'm based in the south of England and haven't made it to retirement yet (fingers crossed), but hope to settle into an enjoyable build. I've had a passion for ship building and associated history for some time and am lucky to live next door to historic sites and ship yards here in the New Forest, all of which have inspired me from school to present day. I literally stumbled on this sight and after receiving some very helpful advice and guidance from its members, so thought I ought to start my own log to track my progress and assist with keeping all in order and legal to the forum rules. I've seen some really fantastic examples of this vessel and others and hope to achieve a reasonable model in my own style. It's been a while since my last model (before I was a family man), and don't care how long I take, or mistakes I make with this my first POF kit. My last model was a POB of HMS Ark Royal WWII ( sorry no but no pictures available, all lost in time), which I really enjoyed as it provided great fun for my to nephews at local ponds. My daughter said I could do this and not wanting to argue with a thrusty 13 yr old, thought I'd get started. I enjoy setting out, and planning and am open to any suggestions, so please feel free to comment. So far I've only uploaded AOS images into AutoCAD 2007 for frame lofting and am still researching some info on the position of water lines for this ship. Q1: Pandora AOS waterlines are not horizontal to the scale and body plan. So I've set out with my keel flat, hoping this is the usual convention. Or are they flat as you'd naturally expect and should be adjusted to suit ? I expect there's more than one correct answer as with most things. I hope to post regular updates, but have to travel about a bit so expect periods of inactivity. Hi to you all and wish me luck. Best regards Adam.
