burnside63 Posted December 31, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 31, 2014 I got this from Ages of Sail. Great service, by the way. Ordered the ship and had it in a week, during Christmas shipping time. I sent them some emails with kit questions and received very prompt responses. I chose this because it is something a bit different and my CFO (wife) liked it, which helped convince her that the price is not do bad. This is a large, heavy box. Everything came well packed and packaged to minimized damage. The build diagrams are large, clear and well organized. There are, for all purpose, no written instructions. The only written page contains directions such as use wood glue for wood-to-wood joints and super glue for all others. The quality of the wood is top notch. All pipes/tubes, such as the smoke stack, are different metals. The prop shaft is brass, for example. There is very little plastic/plexiglass in the kit. Almost everything is white metal with very little flash. Below are some pictures. I will update as work progresses. This looks like a fun build and an interesting subject from a manufacturer that I have not seen previously.
