  1. Amazing! Well done! I’ve bookmarked your page as I am going to purchase this kit and follow your build. Thanks in advance! Do you think this is suitable for a beginner as a first build?

    1. Yes, it’s good for a first build. Only a solid hull kit would be easier. The most difficult part is the planking, but that’s something you must learn to progress to more advanced models.
