Another important point is that the available budget must also consider the purchase of additional tools and materials needed for construction.
Indeed, the boxes contain only construction materials needed to assemble the model.
So you may wish to purchase adhesives, coatings and paints needed to complete the model.
You must also have the basic tools.

When one realizes ship model, it is important to ensure its preservation in time.
For all models where the wood is visible, it is necessary to apply several coats of varnish to allow the wood to maintain a clean and neat.
The varnish also has the effect of bringing out the grain of the wood perfectly.
Thus, all shades of colors appear.
Finally, the wood pores clogged and then avoids the agglomeration of dust on the surface of the wood it would be difficult to remove except with a highly abrasive material.
Varnish wood surfaces helps with a simple dusting cloth or small brush for tight spots.
