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.

This is starting to look good, I like your idea of making a dramatic wave.

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've got to say for pocket money prices this is a really detailed kit I'm really enjoying it, I must have the one good fitting kit airfix made of it because I've got to say so far it's been a perfect fit no problems at all I wonder if there is a bigger than 1/72 model of this kit.

That orange looks spot on.

There is a lot of detail internally! I hadn't realised how good this kit is; I may need to acquire one......!
The wave dio will look really dramatic, looking forward to seeing the finished article

I have to agree that this kit does fit very well. My only issues were with the railings.

Hi all well I've started the water, obviously needs to be a lot bigger on the spray I envisage it going well over the bow and probably double the ammount coming from the front then lots of connon wool for the masses of foam.

Coming along nicely. It's going to look very dynamic when it's finished. Is that silicone you're using for the water?
