Just a quick post. I have been building this since Christmas, when I recieved it.
I admit I am not the best modeller nor am i too patient! So yours should look better.
This is an impressive model and I love the look and scale of it.
12 pages, yes 12 pages of instructions but they are good instructions. A photograph showing you the pieces is then followed by photos showing you how to apply them.
My only concern is that there is a lot of cardboard in the model and storage will need to be well considered.
