I received my new Virginia boat today from Pete At Submarineworks. Kit arrived well packaged, foam on each end, box stuffed with foam peanuts. Instructions are on CD.
Untaping the hull halves revealed a full size set of outboard plans, and all resin parts, sail, control surfaces & linkages all well packed. The parts are molded crisp and clean, no flash and all brass rod installed. Hull is very highly detailed, halves fit like a glove. Initial inspection revealed some minute pinholes here and there, but these can be fixed during the painting process. I will be posting pics on my homepage here as I build, so stay tuned!
The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working.
