Is there a kit to purchase all of the materials for this project including book and instructions or does one have to purchase piecemeal through your site and hope they’ve gotten all the materials? I’m better with an instruction book than a video. Thank you.

She said there would be a tutorial on this specific project. I see the Kaisercraft equivalent, just wanted it in this paper. Thanks anyway.
