Backbround check on a "YH" ship kit?

Linked below is an Ebay listing for a "1/83 17th Century Sailing Ship" manufactured by "YH". Any comments on this particular kit, or "YH" in general? I queried the seller but haven't heard back, & googling this group & elsewhere has turned up nothing. Based upon the image on Ebay I like the subject, but wonder whether the kit's excellent a la Heller, or sub-Pyro & toylike, etc. Thanks for any replies! BTW the same seller lists a 1/350 USS Ohio also by YH.

Seller's description of kit: "1/83rd scale model of a 17th Century sailing ship as produced by YH. The kit is molded in a dark brown, black and white plastic being made up of over 165 pieces which are all still attached to the sprues. Special features of the kit include a highly detailedc hull, main deckm masts as well as the sails."

Can't really tell from the picture, but it ~looks~ similar in scope to one that Heller produced called "The Conquistador". I'd be interested in finding out more about it myself.

The trouble with Heller is that their later stuff is "Royal Louis" or "Victory" quality and their early stuff is early Aurora quality. This thing looks early.
