Sir Charles Edward Posted June 30, 2014 Share #1 Posted June 30, 2014 Since I am still building this kit and had it posted up to the crash, I am going to spend some time reposting this build log from my backup files. I have been and still am posting this log on Ships of Scale, a smaller forum than this one, however there are many names that I recognize that post to both forums. This is a 1:70 scale model but even at that the model will measure 49" in length by 35" in height and about 19" wide when finished. The OcCre kit quality was excellent as the false keel and all 15 or 16 bulkheads fitted perfectly with just very limited sanding of bumps where the pieces were cut out of the laser cut wood stock. I finished assembling the entire carcass or hull in about two days.The carcass looks good, all frames have fit perpendicular to the false keel with a tad flexibility to enable a proper fitting of the planked decks, part #27 and #32. In fact the support beam, part #15, going through the bulkheads is still not glued yet per the instructions. mtaylor, trippwj, ccoyle and 2 others 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
