I built one as a teenager in the 90's... my impression even then was that it was a fairly crappy kit (bulkheads too thick, tons of fit issues, poorly molded/ detailed by today's standards).
But if you want a 1/350 Titanic, that's the only game in town and it CAN be built up into something specatular with aftermarket goodies and plenty of hard work.

I'll third the TRMA site, they are simply superb. The Minicraft kit, with aftermarket accessories, can be the most accurate kit on the market. That being said, straight out the box there are a ton of fit issues, even on the latest reissue.

I'm working on the Academy 1:400 kit.........the TRMA has been a godsend for info. the minicraft kit seems to be their most popular kit.....perhaps they have a few tips for you
