    I just tried to make a superstructure of USS PORTLAND from Fly Model. Since the instructions are not ENGLISH, I couldn't understand the detail, but I think I managed to build one from diagrams.

    One thing:

    I found there are several 'w' marks. I could not find 'w' parts anywhere. What does 'w' means and where can I find it? The following picture shows some of 'w' marks I found.

    Thanks in advance.

    If I remember correctly, the 'w' means 'cut out' on models from Poland. Does this make sense with your Portland?

    Correct.
    "W" or "WYCIAC" means CUT OUT
