On The Workbench 2019

IN
No good, can't resist:

First Zvezda ship I've tackled. Typical Zvezda highly detailed and well made, lots of small parts, even comes with its own plug-in stays and ratlines! Has a choice of basing options, waterline on your own base, waterline on Zvezda base or cradle display base.Overall it's a small model compared to others.  It says on the box 'my first model kit'  if that was the case, good luck.  Appears to me to be yet another challenge.  Fewer mistakes and disasters this time maybe?  I'll be priming the whole thing so the multi-colour plastic will disappear.
