    Really fun ship to put together but not easy., February 4, 2012

    I put this ship together 2 separate times. The first time when I was about 12 or 13 and the second time when I was about 22. The instructions are really clear and easy to follow and the pieces are of really good quality. Revell has always been one of my favorite plastic model kit companies. It is a really fun ship to put together but it’s definitely for someone who has experience.

    I remember the very first time when I put it together, I didn’t care much about painting it or putting on the sails. I just cared about actually putting it together. The second time however, I paid close attention to the details and painting it. You can build the ship either with sails or leave it without the sails and just have the ropes. When I built this ship the second time, I left it without the sails. Attaching the sails would be a nightmare… maybe I’ll do this the 3rd time around hehe :) . Attaching the ropes to the masts was definitely the hardest part. I had to use 2 different tweezers and use them as if they were my fingers. I also had to use glue so that the knots wouldn’t untie.

    Check out my uploaded pictures of the nearly finished model. (Not all of the ropes have been tied around the masts)

    First of all I must say that this is my first try on something like this. I tried to make the ship as detailed as I could and I think it the end result is good, the ship has a lot of little details that make it really look interesting, which is obviously good.
    The problem that I have is that I am an adult and it was pretty complicated to put together some things, I do not know if a kid would actually have the patience and ability to make it without getting frustrated. I think the order in the instruction manual is not the better.

    Very good presentation.

    Wow that is great. You have a great deal of skill with this. I guessing these go in museums so others can share the models and learn about nautical history.

    Lol, use a nail cutter on the nails.

    A beautiful ship and a very nice model. I’m not a model builder, but it’s always nice to observe a master at work. Cheers!
