Today I received some parts from Caldercraft which will replace the kits original parts. As you can see in the left picture the brass castings for the figurehead is way out of scale and even its shape is far off. The parts to the right are the Caldercraft parts which, even though made for 1:72, are much, much better than the original parts. The same goes for the ships wheel where the wooden part in the kit is just a standard fitting (the drawing is not scaled). I also bought the Caldercraft lanterns that will replace the Mantua/Panart lanterns, which are just standard fittings again and have nothing to do with the real ones at all.
