Build has started but not without having a pretty major issue on the very first step... Big enough to ask Squadron for replacement parts but they declined. Lots of putty and sanding a fair bit of plastic and I might get this back on track. Lost my enthusiasm to be honest and I actually regret spending $115 for this kit right now :(
More about this later.

Jens Andrée Looks like I've solved the problem with some heavy handed sanding and a big splosh of putty! ;)
I fully understand the problems involved making as big parts as the Haunebu II consists of, but still it was less than exciting to discover the problem my kit came with. Luckily I was able to move on.

Jens Andrée It did not solve the problem and the bottom hull has snapped three times. Kindly asked Squadron for help, and as a last resort to BUY replacement parts hoping the did the right thing but no joy. Squadron couldn't care less since this was "normal issue".
When I responded to their reply with more information, and pictures, from my part they couldn't bother to reply...
I know it can be hard to make such big pieces - but when a part is faulty, from a $115 kit!, you think they'd be a bit more helpful?
I'm not ever buying anything more from Squadron - that's for sure!
