HOW TO USE THIS AREA:
This page will highlight the many areas of construction.  The areas fall under these five main areas: Hull, Cabin, Electronics & R/C Gear, Painting & Detailing. The directions that follow were modified form the printed directions that were included in my Boothbay Lobsterboat kit.  I have also included my own notes along with many assembly pictures and diagrams.   As I get more pictures ready, I will add them along with any comments to the following pages.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
Although this is a very large model boat kit, it is by no means out of the building range of the model builder. with even modest of stills.  This model also offers a limitless number of detail items that can be added to this lobsterboat.  Since this is a
large scale kit, it's easy to find extra detail parts to add to your lobsterboat.  When it comes to detailing this boat, you are only limited by your imagination. Time should be set aside to think about any extra detail items that you may wish to add to this model during the construction process.
