henryjames Posted January 15, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 15, 2014 (edited) And so my first ever build and build log, (pics to follow shortly!) Open opening the box, it's surprising how flat pack evrything is! although teh quality looks great, ot sof very small metal components and the wood look decent quality. Instructions are in Italian, which for a moment threw me, untill I found the corresponding English translation sheet. In fact instructions are great, lots of diagrams and lots of step by step instructions. The kit comes with a hammer, sanding block, vice, tweezers, and a detailed sanding pen tool, and I have to say teh quality is surprisingly good. For a first timer like me, this is superb. One thing that has struck me is the cloth sail material provided. It has stitch lines printed on, which, though useful, I think will look a bit rubbish on the model. Is this normal, or is it normal to just use this fabric as a guide and go out and buy some other blank linen type fabric? I'm jumping teh gun here as the sails are pretty much one of the last steps but thought I'd ask! First task is sanding and shaping the boom.....
