Today arrived my kit from the San Felipe. It is from zhl and arrived in 5 days from China to Holland. It is scale 1:50 and I am impressed by the quality of the kit. All parts are laser cut and its all big size. The planks of the bulwarks are 65 cm long I wrote it on the wood for the pictures so you can see what I mean. I don't know if I make a blog because I think there are more felipes built here. But if someone likes a blog a will make it.dont know if there is a blog from the zhl version. Here some pictures of the kit. Can't wait to start but first in have to finish the Trinidad and in between it will work on the Wilhelm. I read a lot of times about the Chinees kits that they Just copy the European kits and sell them cheaper but the Wilhelm zu Pferde is normally 830 euro and you get a lot of castings but the main figure on the Stern is Wilhelm and that is a cheap piece of wood with a horse drawn by a 4 years old boy or girl that you have to paint like painting by numbers.why didn't they make that also from Iron? so if they complain they have to upgrade their kits instead of complaining and try to make money with kits that are 30 years old and need a big upgrade. Pfff long story. Sorry.
