I was very interested in this particular kit by the fairly new company out of Split Croatia. The materials are made from quality walnut in various hues. The rigging is superb quality, as well as the blocks and stern lantern. All of the laser cut parts are great, very precise in the making. And the sails are stupendous. Overall I really am impressed with the components and framing quality. I do see also that this will be a bit of a challenge (which I don't mind at all) to create. The over all instructions are lacking in English but the layout plans are very informing. This is definitely an expert level kit. I'm relying mostly on the plans for the entire build and not the instructions. So I spend much of the time staring at them and anticipating what is to come. I started this kit about a month ago with all the intentions of making this kit build last as long as possible. absolutely taking my time with this build. Walnut wood is not one of my favorite woods to work with, it can be stubborn and it is definitely a dense hard wood and needs coaxing into place. so here goes another ragusian carrack build because you need more reference and other methods to research. there is more than one way to build a ship.
