BUILDING A "LIFT" MODEL IS MODELING AT ITS BEST

JAC MODELS REVISIT'S THE OLD "LIFT" METHOD OF BUILDING SHIP AND BOAT MODELS. ALL MODEL BUILDERS (BEGINNERS AND PROFESSIONALS) CAN ENJOY AN EASY TO BUILD MODEL. USE YOUR -SKILL AND BE PROUD OF THE RESULTS. LEAVE PLASTIC AND PLANK-ON-FRAME BEHIND. GO FOR BALSA WOOD.

BUILD AN OUTSTANDING MODEL.

This method was used by early shipbuilders to develop hull lines for many famous ships. JAC Models Adopted this old proven method to produce the kits.

BUILDING PROCEDURE.

The kits come in two ways to build a model. One is cutting out the shapes from scribed balsa wood sheets and the other is removing the shapes from precision cut balsa wood sheets. The kits contain drawings, a bill-of-material describes each piece together. The construction notes give the step-by-step sequence of construction. The painting guide gives the paint manufactures name and color serial numbers. (Paint no included.)

DRAWINGS ARE THE KEY.

The kits include Assembly and Template drawings (22" x 17") for the larger models. Smaller models combine the Assembly and Template Drawings. The Assembly Drawing identifies each part with a piece number and details for putting the pieces together. The Template Drawings include specific details Tor each piece. The drawing* are to scale and full model size.

MISTAKES ARE EASILY CORRECTED.

If you make a mistake, all you have to do is cut the piece from another piece of balsa wood sheet. the "lift" method is more thank gluing plastic parts together, it is using your skill and ability. The Shape of the model unfolds as you stack the "lifts" together.

COMPLETED MODELS.

The completed model is a show piece and is mounted on it's own stand that is build with the model. These models can easily take their place on a mantle piece or desk. many models offered by JAC Models are historic ships and boats and some are of present day vessels.
