preservedkillick Posted December 27, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 27, 2014 Well, here goes again - I WILL finish this one ! I've previously completed the Caldercraft Bounty (think the log got lost when the old incarnation of this forum died), but I also have two large (in fact, enormous) part-completed hulks (Agamemnon and R/C Resolve) that I'm forced to put on hold because I temporarily have less space available - at least until the pesky house sells. In the meantime, I've decided to get my teeth into something (a bit) smaller - hence Granado. First off, a huge gold star for Cornwall Model Boats (CMB) - I ordered the kit 9pm December 23rd, quite happy for it to turn up some time in the New Year, yet here is was, first thing on December 27th. It's the fourth kit I've bought from them (plus a vast pile of consumables and far too many tools), so I know how good they are, but this was good even by their standards. Great customer service is alive and well, and living in Cornwall ! (I have no relation, connection or business interest, other suppliers are available blah, blah) So to that always-anticipated box-opening moment Seriously stuffed box- somebody *really* thought about how to get all that in there (nice change to have a box I don't have to wrestle with - I think you could get about 8 of these in the Agamemnon box) The "miscellaneous" stuff (apart from fittings). The manuals are by far the best I've seen from Jotika (aka Caldercraft) - later design I guess. I've already downloaded the manuals, plus a couple of sheets of the plans, plus a whole set of full colour prototype build photos from the Jot website - excellent ! The structural stuff - no surprises here (hey, whatever happened to "Surprise" ?) - and the stuff you can see Finally, the contents of the "fittings" bubblewrap (a small box would be nice guys - like on my previous builds) Stern decoration looks nice and crisply cast - I look forward to painting it Now to check everything - Jot have been know to make the odd mistake........
