Erik,

I am impressed that you managed to find the model for only $5! Excellent work; that's the same 1/350-scale model that has gone through a number of other companies and typically sells for $125 or more these days!

As regards the hull, what I did with my 1/350 - which had similar gaps in the bottom of the hull: I found a number of large, flat rubber bands, took the two deck pieces which fit into the top of the hull pieces, and set them into place (without gluing them) at the top. The deck pieces will prevent the rubber bands from closing the hull too far at the top so you can't put them in place later. Then the rubber bands should help close that gap at the keel area. Test fit it all before running your glue. Also make sure none of the glue runs into the deck pieces. Then let it sit for a day or two before removing the rubber bands.

Everyone has different styles, but that's what worked for me. Hope it helps. And please, feel free to share pictures of your progress! Take care, and enjoy your project!

Regards,
J. Kent Layton
