Like any kit, reference material is paramount. The person that sold me this huge kit threw in a set of Floating Drydock plans which are perfect for correcting anything and double checking your work. Lindberg didn't do too badly; all doors and vents are where they should be. Silly things like circular hoses instead of triangle. But other than that, the kit is not that far off.
Ledges are a Lindberg hallmark as well as weld lines. Rather than fiddle around delicately to save and kill items, its just easier and quicker to fire up the Dremel and let it rip. The plastic is really soft so killing is easy to accomplish with heavy grit sandpaper.
Once sanded down to the bone, its pretty easy to start mapping out where the little detail bits are going to be afixed to. The "wings" need to be removed from the unit for a start...
I also picked up a Tom's Modelworks photoetch set for this kit so that will make things easier than just doing bulk scratchbuilding. For now, things are moving along fine.
