About the Model Shipways Longboat Kit
The kit was designed by Chuck Passaro. He wrote the practicum that I followed for my first build. He runs Syren Ship Model Company, where I’ve purchased all my rigging line and blocks. He’s also one of the moderators of the Model Ship World Forum. Basically, he’s one of the rock stars of the model ship world.
The instructions for this kit are basically a practicum. They are very thorough and cover every step.
