Columbia Lux - Model Boat
Fast Delivery, well packaged and great quality - very pleased
Our latest purchase : Endeavour Lux-model boat- largest size (not Colombia)
Once again, excellent decorative value for money. ( Please provide code for reduction in cost for our next purchase )
Model ship Columbia
Overall very good and package arrived Quickly and well packed. However when assembling, even though we are sailers, we found difficulty in connecting the rigging correctly mainly because the plans and the picture we're obviously of the larger model. Obviously the various sizes of the model are different in some respects and that should be made clear,. hense 4 stars Never the less what we received does look quite splendid on our windowsill!
Excellent quality display model
Looks great on my windowsill. A little tricky de-ciphering the rigging instructions , which should be a little clearer, but you only need to do it once! I bought the second smallest model (81cm tall) as the smallest one had sold out , but glad I did as it is just perfect for the window.
Genuine and honest company selling a range of nautical themed products.
The item i purchased was, unfortunately, not as described. This was clearly a fault of the manufacturers, not Batela. When i raised the issue the immediately refunded the entire purchase price. This has not put me off buying from them in future if another of their items catches my eye.
