Please keep us posted on this build.  I had an uncle who sailed on the Great Lakes and built really great ship models in the winter I am guessing from scratch.  I sure hope his daughter kept them or put them in a sailing museum.

Looking good. Those kits can be a challenge. Built 4 wooden boats/ships and they were tough after doing plastic models for over 50 years. The old wooden submarine was the toughest model of any kind I ever built. Had doubts I would ever finish it. Keep it going.

Who made the sub kit and .can you post a pic of it?What was tough about it?The biggest issue I have is the instructions for the wooden ship kits.I wish they were as clear and sequential as plastic kits.

I cut a slot in a piece of plastic to act as an alignment tool while constructing the boat cradles.  20181106-214955.jpg
