I have built this model and it is a fantastic kit, the die cut plywood is of good quality and the timber which is mostly walnut is nicely machined with a good consistent grain. I also thought the metal fittings which were of good quality brass some of which is nicely machined and and cast components were excellent too. The only criticism I have is the paddlewheel is a tad on the large side but it could be cut down with a little bit of work if its not to your taste.
