The instruction booklet has no written instructions whatsoever just pictures,they are good for guidelines but in my case, that means nothing because I will heavily modify the kit.

hello Zoltan,

looks like a really nice kit. I have a Sergal kit that is pretty much the same way......only one page worth of directions. everything is in diagrams. it's OK........if I can follow a Billing's kit, I can follow one of these ;-)

looking forward in seeing progress with this ship.......I have an old Revell plastic model of her stashed away. this build may give me some ideas ;-)

After removing the laser cut bulkheads and the backbone and two part special reinforcing parts securing the bulkhead I did dry fit test.

Two parts reinforcement
