For new or limited experience wood modelers, we strongly recommend the technique book Ship Modeling Simplified.

Please note: The manufacturer of this wood kit is based in the Czech Republic. Although complete plans and instructions are included, the limited English instructions provided require critical thinking and some modification as needed. This is not a build by numbers kit, and is not for everyone. Additional technique books, and or access to the advice of an experienced wood modeler or wood model club is recommended.
