It is a fantastic kit that went together rather easily for a resin kit. The first difficult bit was removing and sanding the parts on the resin wafers. Some of the larger pieces on the wafers were warped, but a gentle dousing in very warm water took the warp out. The only other challenges were in constructing the masts out of brass rod and stringing the rigging (with .003 fishing tippet line).
I chose to depict her in her World War I fit. She's painted in the "light gray" scheme, which was described as 20 parts white and one part black. I mixed a sample with some craft paints then matched the chip to Tamiya Medium Gray. The deck is painted using the long out-of-production Humbrol Deck Plank.
