This model should not be attempted by a novice. Instructions are very limited requiring previous knowledge to interpret accurately. The photographic instructions are not accurate. Written instruction, though vague sometimes, do not correspond with photographic illustrations. Instructions for planking are almost forgotten .e.g. plank the hull. Box photo has little relationship to the actual materials supplied for the hull planking. I had to pre-stain all white planking strips to give a result as shown on the box. The box photo and instruction book photos also showed a display stand but there were no materials or instruction for building this so I had to improvise. On the whole the finished model was very pleasing and the construction very enjoyable. I consider it good value for money, subject to the comments above.
