The Prep School Course, Bluenose is based on the Model Shipways kit, MS2130. This course consists of 12 chapters and covers the complete construction of the kit including masting and rigging. It is ideal for modelers with little or no model shipbuilding experience.
No modifications are made to the design of the kit. The hull planking is much simpler on this model which makes construction much easier. The hull is single planked and painted.
With this course, the modeler will learn the basics of planking the hull of the model ship, how to build deck furniture, masts and spars, and how to do simple rigging. The course teaches many of the basics of model shipbuidling and is a stepping stone to more complex models.
The course comes on a CD. The chapters can be printed out by the customer and put in a 3 ring binder, or you can take the CD to an office supply store such as Staples or Office Max and have them print the chatpers for you.
