Hello to all members.
I am an absolute beginner to model boat building, my first boat was the a Mantua police boat this was just to see how i got on with this new hobby well it turned out quite well so i thought i would try something a bit bigger so bought the Aerokits sea commander which i am in the process of building i seem to be getting along fine with this model here's a couple of pics of progress to date (tried to upload picture but i think i will have to read the instructions again)

Welcome Dotslad! That looks pretty good for a first attempt. Look forward to seeing progress on the Sea Commander.

There are loads out there. You will be spoilt for choice.

I suppose it's down to individual taste and dependent on whether you like building plank on frame hulls. If you're going for a tug, I would start with a fibreglass hull as you can progress to top sides quicker for your individual touch.

All the best
