Thumbs up Manifest Lipcowy J.S.C 93

This beauty arrived today;
Scale is 1;400 and model s waterline.
The model builds to a length of 546mm<21.5 inches >
It is rated as skill level 3-medium.
8xA4 sheets contain 907/998 parts depending on how much detail you want to use.Laser parts are available from J.S.C. separately;
Instructions are in english and polish with plenty of diagrams and templates for masts,rails etc.Looks like a simple but impressive build

The ship itself
At the time of her build she was the biggest ship built in a Polish shipyard.She was built at Gdynia shipyard being launched in 1970.She was built in two parts.Stern section completed first then undocked and left at berth until bow section was built.After this stern section was docked again and bow section added.She left on her maiden voyage in october 1970.She then worked for many different companies until being sold to china for breaking up in 1992,She is named for July Manifesto which saw the start of soviet rule of poland following world war 2 which ended in summer 1989


Big apologies in advance for quality of parts photos.Still playing with camera
