Answer for buyer for detail:

Q1: How about of quality of this model :

A:  This kit belong to top level of wooden model kit, dont need worry about design and quality for this kit. 

the kit quality need to compare with other kit to rate. if you have build the CAF HMS ENTRIPRISE (IF WE RATE THIS HIGH QUALITY KIT)

this kit will same level with HMS ENTERPRISE. Compare with the enterprise, the la salamander is same level with high quality but is POF kit,

and also this salamander is 2.0 version which have lots improved based original, hence i can rate it is high quality level + . the best quality with CAF model is La Renommee 1744, can be say it high +++. 

Q2: How about wooden material quality in kit:

A: the quality of wooden is no problem at all, all use very fine wood. however, the nature wood have color difference, this can not avoid in produce process. 

So, this kit have two quality of wood for choose: B LEVEL  and C leveL ( sell here is C level, and any in market with this price is C level, 

B level need order to produce, no one have it in stock, so dont spend more money buy a C level kit).

Q3: What difference with level B and C detail:

A: if you are very specific with high quality wood, choose B level. 

C level wooden material have some color difference in kit.

B level will provide less color difference wood material actually will have color difference but not obvious

the qualities of wood is same (b and c), but part of carving not same. B level is use carving machine to made(part), C level use laser to cut the carvings (part of caving) 

the color difference of wood material B is much less than C. which all chooses or selected. it can not say no any color difference, but the no obvious color difference. 

hence if you choose B to buy , we need time to choose the wood material to made your kit. 

we need 10-20 days to made B level to you, B LEVEL NEED ORDER , if you need this let me know

Q4: Does all rib and wooden all laser cut?

A: YES, all rib are laser cut hence it very accurate, only part of fittings not laser cut

Q5: your pictures clearly show different finishes on larger castings. EG: the 2 mortars are shown in a rustic brass finish and a more

realistic blackened finish. Do I have to request a finish or ? 

A: As i said before, the brass casting cannon with carving on surface is new version 2.0 , it all in kit for now. Original color is brass color, if you need made it black need painting it.

Q6: Is this an older kit that has been lying around for a time ? 

A: no actually even is C level it all made by last month (2019, 8). B level need made after order. So, it will very new
