Stuck at home all weekend, so I thought I'd have a go at at this card TID kit.

Good start.... followed by a grinding halt.... instructions are all in Polish!

After faffing about with OCR, Google Translate & Yandex for a couple of hours, I managed to translate them into ... Chinglish!
The instructions are next to useless and don't tie up to the diagrams and there seems to be huge chunks missing or the instructions & diagrams are done by two different people entirely!

Anyway, a couple of bottles of superglue and a few hours later I got the hull frames glued together...

Hi Martin,
 looking good shame about scale being 1:50 as my SD14 is 1:70 or we could of got you to tow it mind mine will have a all up weight of about 140lb plus I think are you going to make it r/c.

I was a bit worried when I read 'after a couple of bottles'  :police: Fortunately, it was only glue  {-)

                     Regards Howard.

OK, lost again!

It seems there are two layers for the hull 'plating', an inner / under layer ( Light grey on the hull frame ) and an over / out layer that's colour / 'paint' layer. ( dark pieces at he top ) ... does that sound about right for a card / paper model?

Also, what is all the 'pinking' for?


The instructions translate as:

See also Hatch aft cz.1m + n. Keel plating cz.3 top up cz. 3a, similarly, the sides of the cz.4L and P, 4AL - P and 4bli P. We glue them to the skeleton, then stick them to the cz. 5P and L, merged with cz.5aL and 5aP [Figure 4]. Mount a stand under model, with cz.60 and 60A [Figure 2]. We can install as two separate elements: cz. 6L and P + 6AL and P. 6bl and P + 6cl and P. Po they are connected to the hull by straps of cz.6d L and P + 6eL and P.

Is the "pinking" on a bend/join line & effectively glue tabs?

Looks like a line of fold over tabs to glue another to as to glue the side pace to the bottom but looks like if you was careful you could use pinking scissors'

OK 'bit the bullet' today and decided to affix the  hull plates, nothing fix or I'm doing something wrong.....

Stuck myself to the model count:
Today = 4
Total   = 9

Hi Martin,
 So pleased to see others enjoying card ship modelling  but makes you think plastic, wood or ply  isn't as bad as we seam to think.
 still am still enjoying my SD14 will be even better when I get to sail it.
            Regards Howard.
