First hint would be to start a build log and post a few pics of the unboxing. Read the instructions once-over, inventory the parts -- try to get a sense of how it should come together. Read the threads on hull planking and have a look at some examples in the build logs. Ship Modeling Simplified by Frank Mastini is a good primer if you haven't yet done any reading. Relax and don't be afraid to start cutting and gluing -- everyone is a beginner at some point.

after looking through all of the parts listed, i cant find any missing, i just need to sand the edges so they fit flush, and then go on to the next stage , which according to the instructions is to drill holes for masts and the rudder shaft

Chuck Passaro wrote an excellent practicum for building a plank-on-solid-hull model based on Model Shipways' Sultana kit. Your kit is built in the same style. You can view and download the practicum by clicking here.
