Description: Scratch building a model ship is not as difficult as it appears. You’ve probably built several models from kits, so you already possess many of the skills required for scratch building. The only additional skills required are interpreting the lines on the plans, selecting the materials to use in the building process, and developing the method of construction.
Over-and-above the manual skills required to build a model from scratch are three more factors: time, patience, and ingenuity. It takes much more time to build from scratch than it does to build a kit, so you must be prepared to devote at least 500 hours to a scratch-built project, probably much more. Patience is an absolute necessity, for you will find yourself spending much time developing new skills, and it is quite possible that you build items that you are not satisfied with and decide to scrap them and do them over again. Ingenuity is a definite plus, because you will constantly be called on to use new, sometimes outlandish, materials or methods. Thus, an open and creative mind will be your greatest asset.
