Model Shipways provides an excellent beginner's kit with detailed, graphic instruction manual of prototype prepared by Chuck Passaro. Photos and narrative of step-by-step instructions proved an invaluable guide for a first time builder!. I learned a lot from his tutelage and from members of this forum. Follow are some photos of my build from keel, planking and rigging.20190925_104635.jpg20190926_121333.jpg20191006_220405.jpg20191009_221808.jpg20191021_122005.jpg20191119_154120.jpg20191030_095359.jpg20191203_155929.jpg20191204_164848.jpg

Looks great. I’m just starting this kit. What type of glue did you use?

I used Titebond II Premium Wood Glue and Super Glue gel. The latter drys very fast-- in seconds-- and the former has a fast set time. Goodluck with your build.
