Newbie question on tools

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, Juan here. I am new to wooden ship modeling but not to modeling. I have been building plastic for more years than I care to admit and building and flying R/C planes for the past few years. My question to you fine people is What would you consider as essential tools specific to wood ship building. I want to get started on my HMS Beagle, but not before I have everything in place. I plan on doing an out-of-the-box build just to become familiar building techniques and rigging. Not going for historical accuracy this time. So with that said, what's in your workshop.... tool wise.  Thank you in advance for your help and advise.
