"Why did you choose this product?"
This model was very well done and the workmanship and intricate details were excellent. The paint and finish were very good. And although the shrimp boat was packed in a wooden crate and then in an styrofoam lined box, it still had a couple of pieces that were damaged upon receipt. I was able to use super glue to fix them as the two pieces were very minor parts that helped hold the rigging lines for the shrimp trawls. Overall I was very pleased with the boat....

A different type of model with a slant toward thicker woods and accessories. The effect is to give the boat a tougher look just like a real shrimp boat. Very detailed and beautifully finished the completely assembled model is a joy to observe. Ships safely and secure in its own padded box. The craftsmanship gives life to the hard working shrimping fleet. Love it!

Nice but mast fittings poor

Came out of the wooden crate and looks great but then when putting together there are no directions (although the masts and rigging are pretty easy to figure out with picture) and the rigging and masts are pretty tangled once uncrated. Then the rigging and masts do not fit into the main mast and the pre cut and fastened rigging does not allow enough "give" to allow the attachments to fully fit. Holes in main mast not deep enough to accommodate the 3 rigging masts. But even if you further drill the holes to make the masts fit - the rigging is precut and attached so it will not be able to be anchored. Should have sent it back but i was able to rig it up with the imperfections and put it high up on a shelf so nobody can really see the imperfections.
A nice addition to our beach house and at a good price. Instructions were a little hard to follow and some of the fittings needed to be re-glued but it looks great on a shelf above the door.
Product was realistic and packaging was excellent.
