cwraase Posted January 24, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 24, 2014 This is my first wooden model. My dad purchased the Scientific kit many years ago and never built it. I recently found it and have stared building it. It is a solid, mostly pre-carved hull. Not real fancy or super detailed. No scale given, but the overall length is 13 1/2 inches. I thought it would be a good first build kit. This has been quit the learning experience. The instructions are very basic and leave a lot to be desired. They even contradict themselves at times. (The directions state to trim the hull, then glue the deck to the hull. The image has a note to glue the deck first and use it as a guide to trimming the hull.) With the help of the Internet, and especially this site, I have been able to figure out how to the steps glossed over or completely ignored by the kit's instructions (such a bending wood).
