English: The kit can be recommended as well for beginners as for experts in my opinion, straightforward construction but easy to build.
I have made some minor changes to the kit.

Bridge: covered with light trims slightly darkened. Reinforced with square 5x5 cabin opening and bigger hatch to the hull.
Cabin: planked with mahogany strips and reinforced with square strips at angles.

We will keep in touch next year, all the best to all of you and lots of scale modelling.

Ancora qualche piccolo passo
Colorato cornici finestre (Vernice Tamiya Acrilic)  e loro applicazione sulla cabina (I vetri li metterò alla fine dopo aver dato uno strato leggero di resina epoxi  per ripararla dall'acqua)

English: Some more small steps. Coloured the window frames (Tamiya Acrylic paint) and fixed them at the cabin (The windows will be glued inside after having applied a thin layer of epoxi resin to make them waterproof).

Buon giorno,
ho bisogno, se possibile, di un consiglio.
Allo scafo devo dare una mano di Primer su tutta la superficie ?
L'opera viva di che colore potrei farla?
L'opera morta la faccio bianca come da istruzioni perchè mi sembra più elegante
Grazie

English: Hi all, I need, if possible, an advice.
Do I have to paint a layer of primer at the complete hull? Which colour may I choose for the area under the waterline? Above waterline I will choose white as the instructions say which is more elegant.
Thanks

so far I have never covered my models with primer..!
I clean the hulls with an abrasive cleaner, for example Jiff or what's called "Sugar Soap"
then I give them a rub down with fine sandpaper (emery cloth) some were between 180 to 220 grit.
then clean the dust off and other bits with a type of paint thinner
then I paint them with Humbrol No. 70 (RAL 3009) (Revel 37)
straight out of the tin with a brush.. hand painted..

some people go for the lighter shades of Red, I prefer the darker shades..
hope this helps

Italiano: Non ho mai usato un primer per i mei modelli..!
Pulisco lo scafo con un detergente abrasivo, per esempio Jiff o "Sugar Soap".
Poi uso una carta abrasiva di grado 180 a 220. Dopo rimuovo il polvere con un tipo di diluizione per colori.
Poi uso colore Humbrol No. 70 (RAL 3009) (Revell 37) con un pennello .. fatto a mano...
Preferisco rosso scuro per lo scafo, altri preferiscono rosso chiaro.
Spero che sia un aiuto per te.

@ MimmoC: Personalmente uso sempre un primer. Mi sembra essere piu facile di applicare il colore dopo (uso un airbrush). Ho visto modelli di Colin: lui è un maestro con il pennello, io no.

@ Colin in English: For myself I always use primer. It seems to be easier to apply the paint for me (I use an airbrush). I have seen some models built by Colin: he is a master of arts with a brush, not me.

Grazie per i consigli,farò tesoro e metterò in pratica.
Come colori io uso gli acrilici della Tamiya e spero vadano bene,come rosso anche io preferisco colori un po' scuri,quindi aggiungerò un po' di nero.
Oggi continuo con la cabina, metto le porte ed i vetri ricavati da delle lastre per radiografia.
A risentirci e grazie ancora.

English: Thanks for your advice, I will follow and put into practice.
As colours I use acrylics by Tamiya and hope they will work well, as red I prefer colours with a darker shade, so will add some black. Today I will continue with the cabin, install the doors and the laser cut windows.
We will stay in contact and thanks again.

English: Hi all, a little doubt: waterline. Can you tell me which one of the three lines shown at the plan I have to choose? Thanks.
@Mimmo: Anch'io ho avuto questo problema con qualche kit. Ho scelto la linea media con modello in vasco da bagno.
In English: I came across that problem with several kits as well. I have always chosen the line in the middle regarding the model in the bath tub.

There should be a blue or black line that goes the hole length of the model and protrudes beyond the stern an bow, with little lines at the bow and stern outside of the model... this might even be marked LWL
That would be the waterline..

Italiano: Deve essere una linea blu o nera per il lungo del modello che sporge alla poppa e la prora, con linee piccole alla prora e la poppa ... probabilmente seganto "LWL". Questa sarebbe la linea galleggiamento.
