Hi all I decided to give this one a go, it's actually a very nice kit and at 12.99 cheap.
Here's the box instruction booklet and my start on it.






I intend to put it on a base in a very rough sea.

What the others said about the 'water angle.' This sort of situation is classic for lifeboats and will be very effective. Looking forward to what comes next!

Hi all here's the next update, I've heard lots of people say this is a bad fitting kit but I have to say it seems spot on to me (so far anyway) just a trial fit of the top cabin nothing fixed yet I'm toying with the idea of making it removable to show the detailed interior.

I like the idea of making the cabin removable. These are great for that.They also do 2mm and 3mm wide ones.

It's a tight enough fit I probably won't need them but thanks
