Looking forward to watching this build. The SC is a nice subject. Years ago a guy in our club had a 1/2" scale SC. I managed to catch a photo of it with my Dumas Crockett. In half inch it's a big boat. 1/35 sounds like a good size and it will look at home with all the Lindy PTs about.

The hull on the Crockett was a nightmare to plank as the strips needed to be spliced to get sufficient length. The flair in the bow played hell with the splices. It will be interesting hearing your impressions of how well this kit builds as a novice plank hull builder. We do allot of events and we are always looking for good kits to recommend. I'd never recommend the Crockett to anybody less than an intermediate skill builder. I wasn't when I built mine.
