C'est tres cool! I've been thinking that laser cut wood is going to make a huge impact on wood ship kits. Looking at eBay there are some 3-D Puzzles that look like they could be made into a nice model. Although they are a LOT cheaper than the Woody Joe kits. They are mainly from Korea, but there are also the Chinese ship kits that someone on another board is so upset about. It's an interesting approach even if window frames cut into 1/8" plywood don't look right at all. I'm intrigued.

Sweet build! I was doing a google search for Japanese ships and came across images of your boat. I was just blown away by its beauty. Well done on an impressive and awesome build. :)

Absolutely awesome and beautiful wood as well. Well done indeed ! If you do not mind, I will have to grab some shots of this and add it to my rotating images at top of forum. ( I try to rotate those out about twice a week or so).

Hi Guys,

Sorry, I've been offline a lot for a while and didn't see the last couple posts. Thank you for the nice comments!

It's actually a little difficult to take the compliments because this is such a well designed kit. As long as you can get through the instructions, which are mostly visual anyway, it's so well engineered and unique that it's hard to go wrong.

Donnie, feel free to post any photos you have. I have others if you want them.

I hope others will take on some of these traditional Japanese watercraft models that are produced by Woody Joe of Japan. They make plenty of Western style ship kits too. In fact, I just wrote up a review of their Charles Royal Yacht kit. It's a beautiful looking kit that I'd love to get started on, but I have too many projects and really need to focus.

That's not to say that I AM finally focussed, just trying to convince myself!

Clare
