The Flying Fish is a kit made by Corel.
I doubt that I buy any more kids from this outfit though. The reason for that is that the instructions were pretty sparse in that they expected somebody to be already an experience model builder and they really didn’t explain much or give very many visual aids. At least with Artesania Latina oh, you got a lot of pictures to go buy. This one all you had was a bunch of drawings and they could all be subject to interpretation as well.
Another complaint that I have is about the parts. The only parts that was laser-cut was the Frames and Keel. The rest of the parts which include all the pieces for the houses on the decks they expect you to make it using these supposed drawings which are pretty sparse to begin with!
I don’t really care about that because I don’t mind doing it but you would expect that a cat would pizza is that we’re precut. At least that’s how they do it on Artesania Latina kits.
I suppose that what you’re paying for are the instructions and all the little metal pieces and wooden blocks and strings that they put together for you.
But as far as kits versus scratch-built goes, this kit is about as close as being scratch built for me as you could possibly get. At least it kind of gives me more practice for when I decide to scratch build a ship.
