And... the building speed has slowed.

I didn't mention this before because it had not occurred to me, but building this numerically is not the best way. The written instructions are set up in sequential groupings of parts that should be followed instead. Even if you are deficient in Polish language (like me), just pull all the parts for the section in question, then build away. This leads me to my first Oops...

I realized, after I had attached the flight deck, that I was supposed to install the little slivers of deck on the side of the hull. What would have been easy without the top deck in place to give me better access, turned into a slightly longer exercise in patience and dexterity to get the side walls to meet the inner deck sliver edges so no gaps existed.

But after that detour, I wised up and am back on track building the fore mid deck assembly.
