This is the 1:35 Scale Titanic's Lifeboat from Latina
The Sinking of the RMS Titanic, a British Ship owned by the White Star
Line in April 1912, on her maiden voyage to New York was memorably worse
for the shortage of lifeboats, RMS Titanic sailed to it's fate with only
20, enough for only half the passengers. When launched from the sinking
ship into the freezing seas the lifeboats were not full,
worsening the tragedy still further.
Latina rates the difficulty level at one anchor,
recommended for beginning modelers.

COMMENTS: Painting is not required, but a good choice for enamel model paint in

Even though the manufacturer rates this kit as easy to build, this
model contains many pieces and much finish work is required.
Previous modeling experience is helpful.
