How to Pick the Right Ship
Narrow down our selections by considering your interests and experience level.
Picking a model ship kit will require you to figure out how much time you'd like to spend. The size of the ship you select and the number of deck levels will influence the time needed to finish the project. We recommend beginners choose a model ship kit with two decks or fewer. Intermediate and advanced builders might explore kits featuring cannons, sails and other details.
There are six skill-level rankings for ship model kits. Level one kits are suitable for beginners, while designs at level six require special tools.

Tools Needed to Build Ship Model Kits
Whichever ship model kit you're building, the right tools are necessary for positive results. The higher the kit level you select, the more specialized tools you'll need for assembly.
The most important part of your project is having a controlled environment. Ensure your workspace is dedicated to completing model projects. Most enthusiasts will use a spare room or basement space to work on ship model kits over days or weeks without relocating tools and materials.
Make a toolbox of supplies you can use between projects. The most common tools you should have for building model ships include:
- Electric drill
- Table and clamp
- Magnifying glass
- Exacto knives
- Needle files
Storing your tools in a case is the best way to protect your gear and prevent items from getting lost. Look at how many pieces the kit you purchase from us contains to understand what you'll need. Many hobbyists build up their toolbox over time as they grow their skills.
