Absolutely stunned with all that - kind of what I was expecting - but more so - if that makes sense?

I'm now excited/intimidated/inspired/scared rigid - all in equal measure :smallsmile:

Thank you

Details of HMS Hood now on Pontos web site.

I only hope that they also put the large funnel fret up for sale separately. I know that it's been made to fit the kit and I'm the last one to give anyone a hard time, but in my mind it would be a shame to spend all the money and time that it will take to build this kit only to end up with a too-small aft funnel. (Obtaining or casting another forward funnel is a different matter.)


I've ordered mine from Sovereign and, as posted earlier in the thread, they were offering the option of selecting two of the larger funnel frets as part of their pre-order phase.

I had assumed that the two frets would be identical bar funnel component sizes (facilitating a direct swap), but first glance suggests that the frets, #5 and #6, differ slightly in the parts provided (not just the differing sized funnel parts) - so not sure how that will pan out?

Me thinks I am not going to make November with all this detail.

Awesome job there, this really is going to make the kit shine.

Well done

Hi All,
Yep preorder mine option-B. My Hood is in dry dock until I receive my set. Still it did give me time to cut the lower hull off and boxed in the lower hull. I prefer waterline models. At this rate I will probably be getting a second kit to build a full hull virsion. I'd better ask as to when we might get the set??. I know it may be some time because of customs. Brian...

Great news......just had an email from James and Gillian at Sovereign Hobbies telling me that the Pontos Sets have left Korea and are en- route to the UK. Looking forward to getting my hands on this! :woo_hoo:

Alas, I am in Canada and pre-ordered from Free Time Hobbies in the US.

Keumho Kim,
A suggestion.... on Page 3 of the instructions at the header there is the notation for items in purple "Remove before Applying Wooden Deck". With respect to the "Up Deck", there are a large number of parts which I believe should be identified with purple and are not. Also with respect to the sides of the "Up Deck", it might be better if the instructions showed which portions should be removed from the sides of that part. Perhaps an instruction update is required.

Thank you for your note. I checked.
Some newly added skylights were not edited on the manual.
Fortunately these parts are easy to be noticed so you may apply the wooden deck with little problem.
Anyway I updated PDF files newly.

Thank you
Keumho Kim
