First let me start by saying it's definitely buildable and I'm generally positive on the kit. I have a WIP here although I've been busy enough at work that I haven't been able to make measurable progress in a couple of weeks (not likely to change until Mid October at this point).
My short summary is "win some, lose some." The upper hull/superstructure is very slide molded, so there are less parts to have to assemble on it, however this leads to some softer detail in some areas (watertight doors for example). Fit is OK, but there is some test fitting and work needed. Minor sink marks on the bow. So far I've had to remove one locating "pin" from the lower/upper hull joint as it prevented a good fit, but I haven't finished this area yet.
