What do I need to build my first model?

Starting something new is always a challenging moment. You don't want to make mistakes and you can feel a bit of nervousness in a scenario you've never explored before. That's why we want you to be prepared to face this new challenge with our ship models kits for beginners. Here are some elements that you should not be missing in your work kit: Pin pusher. This is a tool designed to insert nails into materials such as wood or other substrates, providing an efficient way to join or fix pieces. No hammer needed. Sandpapers pack. Paint and dyes pack specifically designed to use in the decoration and painting of these types of reproductions. They are vital for adding color and realism to the models. Includes: acrylic paints, detailing brushes for accurate precision in delicate areas, varnishes for the final touch, and dyes to enhance the appearance of wood. Cutting mat, designed to provide a durable and cut-resistant surface while improving precision. Work stand that provides stability and facilitates access to all parts of the model. Basic toolkit. Quick-drying glue. Besides, there are other useful items that you can add to your kit, such as: holding clamps, a precision kit to measure and cut, or a paint palette for mixing colors.

How to choose my first model kit?

The difficulty level will be the main factor when deciding which beginner ship model is better suited for you. You can see the level is clearly specified in both the overall interface of each category and each individual product. It's a good guide to start testing your skills and progressing. If you take on a project that is too difficult for your level of experience, you may risk becoming frustrated, and what we want is for you to enjoy the entire process of construction of beginner ships models. The next requirement will be to choose based on your taste and aesthetics. Once you have gained experience and have become more familiar with the world of naval modeling you will be able to recreate any ship of your liking. Selecting ships with history that inspire you can greatly enhance your level of engagement and enjoyment with the project. Additionally, you should know that you have detailed instructions available for each model, no matter how difficult. They also come in five languages (Spanish, English, French, Italian, and German). But that’s not all, you also have Step by Step videos on YouTubeYouTube videos that explain each OcCre model step by step. And, as if that weren't enough, you have 24/7 customer support and a lifetime warranty with a replacement parts service.

The three most recommended model kits for beginners by OcCre

What we are interested in at this point of initiation into naval modeling is that you will have a gradual learning process and that, starting with smaller and less demanding models in terms of structure and complexity, you can practice, learn, and master the assembly and building techniques that are unique to this fascinating world. For all these reasons, we recommend three ships. The first one is the Polaris Starter Packx, designed for neophytes in naval modeling. It is a simple but attractive model that, as we mentioned in the previous section, comes with all the step-by-step assembly instructions and corresponding video. The same applies to the Albatross, a type of ship known as a schooner, intended for various purposes. Among them, coast guard duties, smuggling control along the coasts, and serving as a small war sailboat. Nowadays, schooners are more commonly associated with recreational activities. Last, but not least, another very interesting ship model for beginners is the Buccaneer. We have always felt a mixture of fascination and curiosity for the stories of pirates who sailed the seas in search of treasures and strategically operated on the waters of the Caribbean to plunder the vessels navigating the trade route between America and Europe. Specifically, the buccaneers were involved in smuggling, capturing small merchant ships, and slave trading. Don't wait any longer and indulge in the pleasure of building your first naval model.
