Have to do some sanding on aft stern area. But she is in good shape. Just need to wash it down in hot soap and water.A alcohol will come after that need a wet sanding so the primer will take.

Okay, started on the aft section of the model. As some of you know ISW models can be a pain. Instruction confused you with the drawings and set up. Also some of parts are brittle and have to get new ones no charge of course. Other than that it is looking alright at the moment. Post photos tomorrow.

Big Thank You to Ted,Jon of ISW to get replacement parts for free. I have 10 kits from them and they turn out great. Long Beach is my easiest build so far.

Mardis: My impression was that all of the 1/350 ISW kits are cast as full hull. Am I correct? If so do you do your own water lining?

You can order them waterline. Just let Ted or Jon your choice. Also they replace parts for free.
