Today, let's take a look at one of the larger Black Seas ships, produced in a resin-and-metal kit:
Opening the box, and out come the contents:
The bubblewrap resealable pouch contains the model itself:
A resin hull and a ziploc baggie with metal parts.
The resin hull looks error-free on first glance.
The rest of the parts are in that ziplog baggie…
…which (as you might expect) are masts, anchors and ship's boats.
Also in the box is a sheet of instructions (the flip side contains standard instructions about resin kits – you know it's boilerplate because it mentions tank tracks!).
And a baggie with a spool of thread (for rigging).
Then there's the usual resealable plastic bag of stuff:
The bag contains a flagsheet, a sheet of sails, a wake marker, acetate ratlines, and a datacard.
Since the kit provides no instructions for how to use the flags, ratlines and sails, or how to paint the model, it would be nice in the future if the company mentioned to check their website for this information. (But I suppose gamers will figure that out anyway…)
