HOW TO USE THIS AREA
This page highlights the many areas of construction of this kit. I have divided the construction of this kit into seven main areas: Preparation To Build, The Hull, The Superstructure & Mounts, Deck Equipment & Detail Items, Electronics & R/C Gear, Painting and Super Detailing. The step by step instructions that follow on this website were taken form the printed directions included in the kit.  These instructions have been redone by me and are designed to aid fellow modelers in the construction of this kit. 

Along with the assembly steps, I have added my notes along with many assembly pictures and diagrams.
