Hello there
I was wondering if it's possible to follow the build log from the forum for help along with the instructions for the Occre Santisima Trinidad kit, since is the same kit as the parts build from model space UK and since I'm unable to subscribe to the UK kits from the U.S but I can buy the Occre kit from some one else.

The instructions for the ModelSpace kit up to pack 8 are on the Trinidad site page.

The ModelSpace Trinidad instructions do not follow the build sequence of the retail kit, and also mixed within the build of the ModelSpace kit, is the build of the cross-section.
If you are a novice period ship builder, I would advise against trying to build your kit using two different sets of instructions, you'll end up with confusion and get lost among the build way. Your best advised to remain with the retail kit instructions if this is the route you are taking.

There won't be a video build of Trinidad.

You'll find it difficult as you will need to extract wood and parts from you kit to marry up with the MS instructions. As mentioned, simply stick with your kit instructions as you could end up opening a can of worms.

Click on "The Build" tab for the MS instructions, which so far have only been uploaded to Pack 08

The retail Trinidad kit is not a first or second period ship build for the novice modeller. You would be far better taking on something less complex then return to the Trinidad once you have learn the basic skills of period ship construction.
We're unable to cross reference your Trinidad retail kit with the Partwork kit as we don't have any info on the retail kit and therefore any guidance would be based on what we know for the partwork rather than your retail kit, also the wood content likely differs too.

OCCRE instructions are not really very good in my experience.I have built several of their kits and they assume you are familiar with many of the techniques used in ship building. To my mind this is where the model space ship kits excel.You get far more detailed instructions and they cover the basic techniques in much more depth than you get with a regular ship kit.

I built the OCCRE Jupiter train and it seemed like a simple build based on the instructions, but it was a bear to finish and turned out to be quite a complex build.

The HMS Victory and Sovereign of the seas have outstanding instructions in my opinion.
