I've had this kit on the back burner for quite some time waiting for the card modeling muse to return. After a lot of time away from the hobby (except for a couple of simple armor builds), I am feeling the urge to tackle another project. The ship is a pre-dreadnought, a robust 1/200 in scale, and appears to be a fairly straightforward build. All written instructions are in Polish, but the diagrams should help a lot, with a nice 1:1 mast / rigging plan included. My questions are two-fold. 1) Has anyone built this particular ship, or Modelik ships in general, and if so, how did you find the fit, clarity of the drawings in terms of illustrating the critical assembly steps, and so on ? 2) This kit features a full hull and I want to build it as a waterline model. It's not set up like Digital Navy's ships to be built as one or the other according to the builder's preference. The internals are off the egg crate construction variety, with the bulwarks designed to be alternately attached from above and below. But looking at the parts sheets, I think it's certainly do-able, in any case it should be easier than trying to convert a plastic model to a waterline version. Worst case scenario, I'm only out the $14 I paid for it if things go horribly wrong. If anyone has any advice to offer regarding converting a full hull model to a waterline version, I'd like to hear about your experiences with it.
