An on-line review: "You'll need some modeling equipment, like an Xact-o knife, a sanding block, steel ruler, and two kinds of CA glue (see the downloadable instructions). This kit is a perfect introduction to wooden boat modeling. It goes together almost exactly like the real thing (with an apologetic note in the instructions where the construction method differs due to the scale of the model). It's just a fantastic kit. The oars are especially rewarding to put together, because you really make them out of raw stock (dowels and strips of wood) and then carve the handles and sand the blades.
The only thing I wish we had taken more care with was the painting. Unlike every other aspect of this kit, there isn't much guidance in the instructions on painting, so I failed, for example, to undertake the obvious step of priming the wood before painting. If I were to do it again, I might use an airbrush or spray paint for the hull and interior, taping the edges. Brush was fine for the varnish."
