Hi there,
When I finish the Heller HMS Victory I will be starting the HMS Surprise in 1/48 scale by Artesenia Latina. I ordered this from Tower Hobbies and it arrived yesterday!

Wow, that looks like some kit and in 1/48 even a 28 gun frigate is going to be a big impressive model.

Paul,

So how do the instructions from Artesania Latina compare to Heller's set for the Victory? I've considered getting a kit from A.L., but just never followed through.

The HMS Surprise instructions are much better than the French instructions that come with the Heller kit. But, it would be hard to be better than those instructions!
