Getting Started - Hints & Tips

This from the Hachette web site -

By looking at the last picture it is likely there will no mention of a build board, this is a must if you don't want your model to be a banana, simply take a length of fairly strong wood (something that is not going to warp) with the measurements of the ship plus add some extra (I will post a possible size for the board here soon)
By looking at the image above I would say screw the bottom section to the base board after making sure it is square and use plenty of set square to make sure all is straight.

Also what is interesting to see is the lack of any other part of the ship to go along with the hull frames, looking the Bismarck build they were supplying many other items from the word go, hopefully this doesn't turn out to be just the hull for the duration of the build up to that point.

If this is your first model ship then please take your time and find out as much as possible on the net on how to go about getting the best from this partworks, take your time, dry fit always, and abive all if your unsure please ask, email me, find a forum,, there are some talents around that can and will help.
