Nord 262E Fregate

Hi everyone!
Here is another one I've got on my bench. Nord 262E that will be in french Marines tiger meet scheme. Kit is from Broplan in 1/72nd scale and it's a vacform with some injected plastic parts.

Here's what I have for now. I've never built a vacform before, so I'm learning as I go.

You certainly can turn anything into a masterpiece Uros, making it look easy!

How have you found the thin plastic of the Broplan kit? I have a couple I'd like to build eventually.

Thanks Ray!
It's not easy at all. Thin plastic is problematic. Everything needs to be reinforced. Luckly there's enough of extra plastic left to do so.

I have all major pieces glued together now. I have putied everything, including panel lines and sanded smooth. Now i'm rescribing and after that I will add details.
