UPDATE - DECKHOUSE REPAIR
Iron Shipwrights DDG 6 Build...and right outta the box we have issues
-warped mainmast and support structure — scratchbuild new one
- bubbles in hull (lower side) - display in water diorama instead of full hull display
- chunk missing out of deckhouse - scratchbuild repair
- most of the small pieces are unrecognizable junk, so off to the aftermarket for suitable replacement parts. SMDH, nonexistent QA I guess...
Completed 1:1 drawing of replacement piece using instructions, photos and calibrated eyeball. used thin plastic to lay a foundation that replacement could lay on that relievies stress applied to the repair joint. It also filled a gap between the two deckhouses because i found the upper one was, surprise, warped....
