I was going to start another cutaway build but instead I've gone with this, I brought this second hand and I know I'm missing a couple of piece but I can replace them as and went needed.

Its called Combat Place or Between Decks but I like the sound of Battle Stations...

It comes with a big instruction manual about the same as the stage coach, plus a massive double side sheet.

As I said this was second hand and as so the previous person had tried to build this.

No idea what glue they used but its like hot glue gun stuff.




So some damage here and there.

First up was to make 3 frames for the main unit.





Each one has to have two holes drilled so you can add some dowel to help support the joints, I just used cocktail sticks why waste a good dowel.

Next was to add the cross beams 3 at the top and 3 at the bottom.

I've only glued the bottom once here the top ones are just dry fitted to help position.






Left that for a day.

That looks an interesting project Ian and I'm sure it will build into a great display piece (and talking point) at the end of it?

I'll be watching! Cool ThumpUp

Well I’ve got to where the other person got to and I can see why he gave up.

The inner uprights that sit between the outer and middle uprights are to small, where the manufacture has cut them they didn’t take into account the added distance to the top of the uprights.

I’ll post photos tomorrow, spent most of the day helping a friend that’s designed and made a stand for building 1/12 scale bikes like the Tamiya ones.

Then I got about an hour look in on this.

Hi Phil and welcome.BigGrin

So this is where the other guy got to so from here out its all new so to speak.

The part in question is this long piece which as you can see is the size the manufacture made it to.




And according to the instruction sheet this should sit level underneath the tops cross beam which sits flush of the uprights.



Now I have seen some builds of these where the builder has simple moved the top cross beam down to sit on top of these uprights which is one way of doing it.

So I've simple pinned some scrap wood to the top and bottom so I can get the uprights to sit flush.




Which give me a slight lip to push the beams up to.




And with the upright beam sitting against the bottom cross beam this is the gap left.



All I've done is glued the bottoms in place and waited then add a small piece of scrap wood to push into the gap with glue, which at the moment is drying.

If you look in the background of the last photo you can see where the manufacture made there mistake as I see it they made these the same hight as the other uprights instead of adding 1.5mm to them.

Either way work, up I prefer to have the cross beam level so when I add the upper beam section it can glue to the whole length instead of just 3 points.

So from what I can find out about this kits it’s meant to be based on an English 1800 war ship, so I’m thinking of frigates as the design seams to fit what I can see if photos. It can’t be anything bigger as the outside design doesn’t really match the bigger ships.

Hi Mustang,
This kit already seems to have its own challenges, but nothing you can’t sort out with your experience. BigGrin. It shows the value of the forum to beginners though by gaining knowledge from experienced modellers such as yourself.
Great stuff ThumpUp
