I am new to ship Modeling, but not modeling in general. I can build a 1/35 dragon armor smart kit. I want to start building model ships. I have been looking at a Bronco 1/350 Chih Yuen kit. Is this a good kit for someone wanting to branch out into naval? I generally enjoy the aforementioned dragon kit, as well as Eduard aircraft kits and Bandai Master Grade Gundam Kits and Bandai Star wars kits. Thanks for any feed back.

With the types you have built, you should have no trouble with the Bronco kit.

What would be a good place to learn to make rigging and rat lines? Would there be a good youtube channel or website to learn from? Thanks for the reply.
