Both ships have sailed in,
docked, and seem happy in their new home port.
The shipping was a little entertaining on the delivery,
but worked out well, in the end. So I have been studying
each of the models now for an hour or so, instead of
working, but, hey. What two great distractions these
Some feedback on each:
USS CONSTITUTION: The level of and execution of the
detailing are outstanding. Period. I did a lot of
research on this particular model, and I found no other
model that compares to it. Period. The rigging and the
masts alone qualify this model as exceptional in its
class. Add in everything else, and its a major player.
Seeing it "in person" is more than convincing of its
greatness. It exceeded my expectations.
SAN FELIPE: Here, the level of and execution of the
detailing is stunning. The artisanship is simply
fantastic and over-the-top. It competes "bow-to-bow"
with any SF model on the market that I have seen and
beats any of them, hand down. The model is WAY better
than the photographs and GREATLY exceeded my
expectations. I could go on and on about this model.....
I love it.
SHIPPING: Packaging was A+! Well designed,
straightforward, and very effective. And best, no
SUGGESTIONS: Meant somewhat tongue-in-cheek: Frank, you
need better photographs! The gap between what the photos
convey and then what the models themselves convey is
dramatic. That said, I'll tell you it is a wonderful
experience to see something that is actually MUCH better
looking than its photographs!
Would I purchase another of your models? Oh my God, yes!
I am already trying to figure out which model I want
next (likely HMS Victory).
So I'm now a huge fan.
just wanted to let you know that I uncrated the San Felipe Friday and
I'm very pleased to report that it arrived without any damage at all. I
am also very pleased with this ship and the unexpected full carriage
lower deck guns and
the working stern lights.
When and which model do you
think will sail next?
