Brand new modeller

Welcome to the forum.  It probably is Chinese....what brand of kit is it because we have a ban on some Chinese kits because they are pirated from legitimate manufacturers.

 

A good place to start is here....click on this topic below.

 

If you have any questions about it please contact me and I can tell you if it is in fact a banned or pirated kit.  We do not allow these to be built on our site for obvious reasons.  If its the one I am thinking of (huasong) which is only about 20" long then you will have hard time building it.  The kit itself is not a copy BUT......Its an awful kit and although it is cheap,  you will get very frustrated trying to build it.  This particular company does have a pirated copy of two other smaller subjects....a Harvey kit and an albatross kit.   And because of this they are banned from our site.  These were copied from long standing MFGs.   Better to start with a smaller and simpler subject from a quality MFG rather than a 3 decker 100 gun ship in a very small scale from cheap Chinese site.   Not really recommended for a first time model builder.

Gidday Jeffrey D and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

I do not wish to dissuade you from this extremely rewarding and challenging pastime but these kits are cheap for a reason. The quality is abysmal and they are usually pirated. I believe the only thing you will learn from these kits is frustration and regret. In my opinion you are far better off saving your money and searching for a beginners kit in the build logs.

I wish you only the best in your search.

Mark.
