Hi all i received this infamous kit as a present from my missus (note from the title I will only be correcting those errors my megre skills and even megerer knowledge will allow) that said as I'm building just a generic ship of the line it will end up being exactly right.

I have today ordered some gold leaf for this kit as it worked so well on the La Reale and the Royal Sovriegn, I have some copper leaf and brass leaf, wish I could find some bronze leaf for the canons (does anyone know how I could colour brass leaf to look like bronze).

I know everyone will be saying get good am blocks and tackle also bin the thread and get some proper stuff, but, the missus has said keep the costs down, also I feel why spend more on am stuff than the kit cost, so will be investing in bees wax and apart from the gold leaf all else will be oob (apart from maybe some scratch building.

OMG they have given you two Portside hull halves. I've never seen that happen before, but I have only ever built 3 Heller ships. Good luck!

Hi all well I cant do much more than this(of course when the gold comes will get more done) I really am peed off though, I know from experience it will be weeks before I get the replacement hull half, stuff like this is really frustrating.

You could just build an open hull cut away model showing the highly detailed interior:)

Hi all I've finished one of the rear gallerys so I thought a lot of the detail was hidden so added an oil wash to them

I really like the gold leaf, but have absolutely no idea how to do it. I would certainly appreciate a "how to" on the gold leaf technique.

I have a question.  Is all gold leaf removed from areas to be painted or can you paint over bits?  If the paint is thinned, can you let it flow into small areas and can you wipe foiled areas if paint gets on them?  I can't imagine the careful work in foiling itself considering how thin it is.

Hi all well it's amazing the effect threatening to sue, not just for the cost of the kit but also compensation can have. Special delivery today the hull half arrived(no letter of apology or even a note just the box with the hull in it)
So looks like it's back on then.

Hi all well now the hull half is here I'm like a cat with 2 tails, so my first job to remove the moulded plimsole line (I'm raising it a bit to improve the look) (seen it done elsewhere (davidk's build) and it looks much better)
