I bought this kit on ebay for about $10. Before starting it I should have scanned the sheets so that if mistakes were made I could have printed new sheets to replace the messed up parts. I crafted the lifeboats from pieces of balsa, the davits from heavy brass wire and the masts from wooden dowels and scrap wood on my work bench. This kit lacked any internal structural parts which I should have addressed before closing up the hull. The following images show the sequence of construction.
