Wooden boat kits require skill and patience, the easiest being those  a solid or plastic (ABS) hull. More difficult but the more usual plank on frame hull construction. An absorbing hobby,  models with intricate rigs may take months to complete.

Necessary tools include a good hand drill with a selection of drill bits between 0.5mm and 2mm. Small files and wood rasps are very usefull, for cleaning up decorative fittings and laser cut parts. A small pin hammer is a must, and can be used in conjunction with the Amati pin pusher. This can save injuring fingers by allowing you to guide a tack gently into the frame with precision. A selection of modelling knives is crucial, the Expo metal shaft handles allow for a variety of cutting blades to be fitted, not to mention specialist chisels & gouges. Curved blades are best for making straight cuts, whilst a straight blade allows for intricate cuts. Miniature needle nosed pliers allow for manipulating small fittings as would a good set of tweezers. Vices and clamps are effectively a third hand, and a good magnifyer is also important, preferably one that's suspended on a free standing base. We supply a fantastic range of modellers tools from Expo. Some are some very specific tools for period ship building, plank benders for example reduce the risk of frustrating splitting or breaking of the often wafer thin planking strips, and the Amati Loom-a-line is an excellent rigging frame for building vessels with difficult to rig ratlines. see our hints and tips page for more info.

Remember! If on examination you feel you would prefer another model, you are free to return any item for a full refund, providing of course that it hasn't been started.
