Welcome Andy!

What kind of kits did you buy?
I have a small collection of SIB kits. But I'm skeptical about kits.

I bought 2 kits. One is cheap and one is expensive. I’ll include the links. I just figured with having no experience at all it could point me in the right direction. One of the things I’m struggling to comprehend is the hinge mechanism to bring the sails up. I don’t have the kits yet though waiting for them.

Hello Andy!
Yes, I am familiar with these kits. I studied their designs and technology. Amati makes two sets with the same assembly technology. I am very skeptical about the hinge mechanism to bring the masts up design by Amati. In addition, the flat elements of the spars made of brass are also perplexing... I prefer not to use hinges in my models. 

Best Regards!
Igor.
