The kit contains the finest woods, such as high-quality beech and African walnut. Five and six-millimeter poplar keel and bulkheads ensure an exceptionally strong hull. Fittings are superb in a variety of pre-finished hardwoods, photo-etched brass, and gilded cast metal. Seven sheets of plans and comprehensive instruction manual guide you to the completion of a model fit for a king.
