I can show you some photos later today.
This is definitely an old mold, probably from somebody other than Zvezda. I would think that the plastic is good. The gunports aren't molded 100% symmetrically, so I have done a lot of sanding to adjust the horizontal position of the gunports. Vertically, they should be ok iirc. The sails, are hard/soft molded plastic. I thought on using fabric, but packing the sails, as I think it looks nicer. The cannons aren't very details. I ordered metal barrels, and 3D printed my own. But from a distance, the kit kannons probably look ok. The rigging for the side climbing stuff is all plastic. The kit contain different rolls of strings for the rest of the rigging. The deck and detaliling looks good I would say. I did buy aftermarket wooden deck, just to reduce the width of the planks. I also curved the deck, an experimental thing. There is no internal detail other than a plain cannon deck below. No cabin details iirc.
Yes, I think I can recommend this kit. I just don't know how difficult it will be to put up the plastic sails. the ship itself is a nice looking frigate.
Some 50 cannons or so. Also, kit box have no figures iirc.
