This is a curious re-packaging by Revell, offering its Sunseeker 108 kit (first released in 2008), but now with a bland ‘Luxury Yacht’ title. The ten white styrene runners (plus one for tinted transparencies) are identical to the original release, and unfortunately it doesn’t appear that issues regarding sink marks and flash have been addressed. While the former is noticeable on the hull halves (the inner structure can be traced easily in the hollows), the latter is confined to the smaller parts, notably the cabin seats and aft railings. Although simple to rectify, it’s disappointing on such a comparatively modern release. In contrast, the transparencies are well moulded and crystal clear, and the foredeck and single-piece interior are the standout items, especially the rendering of the wooden decking. Just the single scheme is offered, for a striking black/white livery, as opposed to the dark blue/white vessel depicted on the box-top. The decal sheet is less generous on this release, with markings for just ‘Aurora’, a Monaco-registered yacht.
