Thanks Guys,
@Gandale, I would research and read through instructions many times then attempt it. The instructions sequence is complete rubbish. At one point building then spraying, 20 issues later sticking parts on and respraying. Just needs a little thought in the sequence and builds easily. upto issue 140. Then its a shambles. trust me I am pulling hair out at the lack of instruction. Parts are numbered on the picture which is zoomed out with no way of knowing what the part looks like and the parts diagram at the beginning not listing the part. Also parts just appear in the pictures with no instruction anywhere to show them being placed. Other than that great to built.

Here are some more pics. I am leaving a few items off as I cannot reach them to fit in place with the incorrect sequence plus with house moves have lost a couple. But who will know lol. Still looks ok.

Hi,
Here is an update on the build. I am nearly done as much as I want as the instructions are rubbish plus have a few parts missing which to anyone not knowing they wouldn't notice it.

I just need to finish the rigging the stern rail and all the lifeboats.

Chris

BigGrin All looking good Chris and nice work. I remember when I built this ages ago that at the end you had a pile of parts with no instructions on where they were placed.

I found that if you look through th magazine pictures that most of the parts can find a home although my bigest gripe was the white metal castings that you had a hard time even recognising what they were or where they went as most just looked like white metel droped into cold water blobs.Cool

I'm not a ship modelling fan, as I've said many times on the forum, but I do appreciate a well built model whatever the genre and you've made a beautiful job of this one Chris, so credit where it's due.

Well done, looks great! Cool ThumpUp
