Hi all, well where do I start, I knew this would be a challenge (never tried this type of kit before) well if I do another, and that's a big if, I will change somethings there are no tabs just gluing edge to edge with the cardboard also they've modelled it with a flat deck (As we all know they're not they're curved to allow the water to run off) I've adjusted that the cardboard is very soft and thin also there is a bend into the middle of the hull template in order to fit it in the box since I've glued the hull together the sides toward the stern have gone concave so will have to unglue those and make some formers for ti to keep it out, I would suggest to future builders you trace the parts out not thicker and stiffer cardboard and add some tabs to increase the strength and make gluing easier.
Anyway here is where I am now .

I figure I will matchstick all the sides then sand them all down smooth and paint it rusty white or black also I intend to make the masts and stuff out of other materials

Very interesting, but I'm at a loss -- what exactly is this "kit" and who produces it ? :???:

It's a trawler made from matches it's made by a company called Hobbys.

Interestinģ approach building the card to shape then coating with matches. The two match kits I built required coating the pieces of card with matches and then gluing those pieces together to get shape - hence why there were no locating lugs on card parts

Thank you, interesting webstore.
Now that I look at the kits, I'm pretty sure I saw the steam traction engine built-up at a show over here.
