18th Century Pinnace and Longboat--"Advanced" Level?


Recommended Posts

Brand-new to modeling and would like to start with a project that offers potential for reasonable success without being boring.  I'm considering the 18th Century Pinnace or Longboat for a first project.  I've read through Chuck's instructions and find them very clear and logical.  My head seems equal to the task and I know my hands will learn as they work, but I am spooked because Model Shipways has labeled this kit as "Advanced".  Can anyone speak to this question?


Also, I see in other forum posts that kits sometimes go on sale.  Is there a notice board or other means of being notified about sales?
