Wednesday the 27th of November 2002:
Since I couldn’t get back to bed and get some more sleep I stayed up all night long watching TV and some movies on cable but eventually I got bored with that so at 5.30 AM I decided to start building on the two bottom hull plates of the 10030 Imperial Star Destroyer set.
Three hours later at 8.30 AM I had finished off building both of the bottom hull plates but when I built the second one that goes on the right side, looking at it from behind, I discovered some errors in the instruction booklet regarding Step 20 (page 98) and Step 21 (page 99).
The error are as follows:
Step 20, page 98.
A magnet that aren’t supposed to be attached until Step 21 on page 99 is already in place.
Step 21, page 99.
I looked at the picture on the left upper corner of what parts that are needed for Step 21 and discovered that one 2 x 12 plate and one 2 x 16 plate is not included on the parts needed picture but on the hull plate progress picture they’re shown already attached and in place.
Since I’ve got a few days off from work and driving the taxi cab I slept all day long and when I got up I started to build the upper hull plates at 4.30 PM and three hours later at 7.30 PM I were all done and attached them on top of the frame of the ship that’s starting to get real huge.
The construction of all the four hull plates were pretty straight forward and easy to build compared to the time consuming work that had to be done on the frame and all the details that went on the sides but care is however needed as it’s pretty easy to miss a thing or two.
