Make a Model Battleship - Part 2
This build, while very detailed is also very straight-forward. You start by gluing the deck to the upper hull portion.
From here almost all of the building will be adding parts to the deck.
If you have never build a plastic model before you might be wondering how to identify the various parts. And this model has hundreds of parts. Everything is made clear and easy for you.
The assembly instructions tell you how to assemble it, part by part. And each part has a sprue letter and a part number.
So you just find that lettered sprue and the part by its number.
Once you have identified the correct parts you cut them from the sprue.
And you glue those parts together.
For this model a good portion of the work is putting together tiny sub-assemblies for the various guns and equipment that will go on the deck.
You just make these as the instructions show.
And sometimes with a model you will see the instruction to make a hole. In this build there is one part that needs three holes. These holes are needed so another part can be attached to this part.
To make these holes I used a pin drill. It is a handy little tool. But you can use a needle or some other kind of sharp object.
Ok, we have built a lot of the little sub-assemblies. Let's continue
