An introduction to model boat building a€“ here is how to get started making your own RC or static model ship from kit or scratch. When starting building model boats for the first time, I find the hardest part being able to help people choosing a model that correspond with their particular situation, be it their skills, tools, interests or place of construction. Most people seem to think building model boats from kits is a lot easier than building from scratch.
Just about all model building materials you can think of has been used for model boats hull construction by now, anything from whale teeth to carbon fiber. The hull is probably the most important aspect of model boat building a€“ and, in my opinion, the most fun to build! If building model boats from a plan for the first time, a half hull model can be a good start. It seems model boat fiberglass hulls are gaining more and more at the expense of vacuum formed ABS hulls among kit manufacturers.


Essentially, it is half of a hull split down the middle, sometimes with wheel house and stumps for masts when relevant. With the goal of building a toy as opposed to a scale model can take some of the pressure off for the result to be 100% realistic and allows infinite artistic license. The most important advantage a kit has is that some parts are preformed and that it comes with instructions.Some wooden model boat kits are of low quality, both in terms of material and instructions.
If you are in hurry, consider a kit with a preformed hull from ABS or fiberglass.If youa€™re just starting out, you may want to choose a relatively simple project.
They are typically more or less successful attempts at depicting a historic or fictitious vessel (such as from a movie). There is an underlying tolerance in the model boat community for "semi scale" models as long as they are working models. It is then mounted on a board and hung on the wall for display.This type of models was originally made by yacht, boat and ship builders and designers that didna€™t have the expertise to design directly on the drawing board.


A measly kit like that is a waste of time and will hinder you more than help.Many model boats have been build from scratch as a first model.
Herreshoff, the famous American yacht designer, apparently designed all his boats this way.Solid or laminated hardwood is the most common material, although planked or "crow's nest models" (bulkheads and incomplete planking) happen as well. I'd recommend using balsa or basswood to limit the need for power tools.If you happen to be an experienced woodworker with a shop area and some power tools, building bread-and-butter model boats may be a good option. Not only is the time and effort required often underestimated - static models are more often than not too heavy to do well as working models.
