    Hello,

    If parts of a kit (hull plating) do not have the thickness indicated on the pieces, does this mean to use the paper as printed without laminating? I know * 0.5mm, ** 1mm, ***2mm.

    Thanks

    That's generally the rule, yes Sambini. If not indicated otherwise, use the parts "as is".

    It does vary between publishers and sometimes even between kits. It's always a good idea to pay attention to the instructions on a specific kit.

    All well and good, but I don't read Polish or German! LOL...but I know that somewhere on here some of you guys got together listed a guide for some of the majors like GPM, Fly something, and others...it was just like the symbols, what the * meant, etc. Now just to find it....:twisted:
