The components for the kit are cut by a laser into the card and/or MDF. To keep the parts on the card there are some small tabs that you will need to cut.

When you want to remove a piece from the card, cut through the remaining lines to release the part.

Always pre-fold any parts with folds. If the fold is not crisp and clean, gently score the fold with a sharp knife.

I mostly use white wood glue and occassionally a bit of superglue for construction: the superglue is used for small parts as it bonds fairly quickly (within 3 seconds) and the white glue for larger parts but feel free to use whatever glue you are comfortable with.

The battlefield is a dangerous place: it is recommended at each step to put a thick strip of white glue along the inside of all joins to make your model as strong as possible

Attach the fins as shown

You can use wood glue to make the hull stronger (and hide any gaps)

Squirt some into the gaps and then wipe it off with your finger



The engine pods
