Spotlight Review

"First wooden kit"
themadchemist (Southern, IL)
First off, Midwest has instructions in pdf for download from there website (for all their boat kits), which is what sold me on the kit. The kit is well explained and diagramed with full to scale rolled plans, besides the excellent instructions. The hull required quite a lot of sanding and shaping, which again made for a greater feeling of satisfaction. If your scratch building modifications to plastic models (ie the traction bars and starter solenoid I built for a 68 mustang kit I just built), try wood, its very enjoyable. For anyone planning a plank on frame ship, I highly recommend this kit as a starter project to give you a feel for creating each plank to fit. It is an easy success for anyone with minimal skills and patience, and one you can complete in a shorter period then the tall ship kits. I just ordered 2 more Midwest boat kits due to the fun building this one, the Muscongus Bay Lobster Smack has sails so it will give me some practice with light rigging before I tackle the Artesania Latina Scale 1:90 San Francisco Spanish Galeon
