I have had several questions as too this kits parts. The hull is my standard Hog Islander. Everything else from the hull up is all new. Still working on the instructions, should be ready by August 1.

Thanks Todd. I have not released a new ship kit in about three years. I am very happy with the orders so far.

Update on the AK 15: I made a mistake on the navigation bridge. Steel deck not wood. Instead of a quick fix, I am making a new part. The kit will be ready to start shipping by Wednesday.
