High x 13 wide, making it impressive yet not huge. Youllcertainly find a place of honor for it. Unlike similarly sized and pricedships like Corels La Couronne, HMS Bellona or Victory, its scale is.
1:40, instead of 1:100. What does that mean, if the size is about the same? As rigging blocks, bilge pump, doorways, stairways and cannon, with their carriages, rigging and. Accessories, are all two and a half timesLARGER!On most ships in this range, such details are not. Only difficult towork with, theyre difficult to SEE once complete. The Berlin, with its largerscale. Emphasizes such details, making them pop out, and yet theyre easier towork with.
A delicate job, is much easier to get man-size (orwoman-size) fingers in, to tie knots, rat-lines. Just look at and admire all the stern castings to see what I mean. Yes, theresonly a single deck of cannon, but you can see all of them, unlike most shipswith two gun decks, where half are hidden. Even the cannon become models in themselves, when theyrealmost 2 long, instead of less than half that. Planking is walnut and otherwooden parts are beech and mahogany.Figurehead, bowsprit, stern and transomdecorations, cannon and hundreds of other pieces are beautifully detailedgilded metal. Providedetailed doors, name plate and other details. Blocks, deadeyes and belaying pinsare fine-grained yellow boxwood.
Canvas sail material, four fabric flags and mahoganydisplay cradle are also included. Youd want to frame them, if they werent so huge. Speaking of the plans, Ihave, in light pencil, annotated some areas by translating the Italian toEnglish (the 40 page Instruction Manual has English as well as other languages, but in general, the plans do not). You can easily erase them (after building), if desired, but this is one reason Im describing this kit as Used Excellent, rather than New.In mostways, the kit is New: None of the bags of parts have been opened. None of theplastic containers for cast details and other parts have been opened. The largecardboard box containing the stripwood has been opened, but the quality walnut hullplanking and other materials are undisturbed.
