Legends of High Seas large ship
The next ship building project will be a scratch built ship using 'The Nutmeg' made by Flying Tricycle as a template.
It is a fairly large ship and it definitely qualifies as a large ship by Legends of the High Seas rules standards. It can easily carry 20-30 crew above deck and another 15-20 crew below.
It comes with a fair number of parts and many of the parts have a pretty ingenious design. Such as how the crows nests are built. Its the little details such as the dingy included that make the kit extra sweet.
The materials are laser cut birch plywood making it a pretty solid kit.
I bought this last year for $30 USD when they were having a 50% off sale but this ship is easily worth full price.
