This book contains detailed instructions on building the FFG-7 USS Oliver Hazard Perry 1/350 scale model ship from Academy.
I’ve broken down the kit’s instruction to individual steps for each piece. I’ve also integrated the instructions for the aftermarket kit from Pontos (35019F1). This book provides a little history of the Frigate, a detailed list of tools that I used to build this model, along with a list of paints. The actual instruction section contains 1268 steps and 185 plus figures over 243 pages that tell you what to dry fit, glue, and/or paint for each individual piece. Each step instruction shows the source (i.e., either Academy of Pontos) along with a block to mark that you completed the step. The steps for the Pontos kit are colored gray making it easy to skip if you just have the kit.
There are several pages of in-process photos with assembly tips and the final photos of my build for reference. This book is a great checklist to make your build go smoothly. Of course, you can feel free to use different tools, paint, weathering, etc. or even add your own diorama. I hope you find this book useful.
