  I have been asked many times:

 "what model would you recommend for the beginner?" 

he purpose of this web site is to provide the boat modeler information on the

  I will provide the boat modeler an in-depth review of this kit.  During the construction of this kit, I will outline some modified building instructions I made to my model to aid in your assembly.  With these modified instructions, the assembly of your kit should go even more smoothly.

This review has not been conducted by Midwest Products, Inc., but by a fellow boat modeler with over 30 years of experience in various types  of model construction.

  The origins of the Maine Lobsterboat at this time are not yet agreed upon. Most authorities argue that these boats evolved from the Maine Hampton Boats of the early part  of the 20th Century. But exactly when and where the first true "Lobsterboat" was built is yet still known. Today, there are literally thousands of these vessels, all very similar, being used along the Maine Coast of the United States.

  The Boothbay Lobsterboat is a generic scale model of a typical 30 foot Maine Lobster Boat. The full-size boats are work boats used primarily to set out and recover lobster traps. If you are interested in building an exact scale model, a little research at the public library will yield enough data to help you do this. However, if you are building your model just for fun, and to generally represent a lobsterboat, you can let your imagination have free reign. Lobsterboats can be thought of as floating pick-up trucks. Although they are all similar in shape, the exact size of cabins, number of windows and the color and placement of equip­ment varies greatly from boat to boat. And who knows, somewhere there may well be a prototype for your model!
