Building ship models from part kits is one way to spread out the cost of more expensive kits over a period of time. Depending on the manufacturer, some models end up costing a lot of extra cash. But some may actually be pretty reasonable. Here’s one example of a part kit build of a large kit from model kit manufacturer OcCre.
I began writing about OcCre’s model kit of the Spanish 74-gun ship of the line Montañes a few months back, when I wrote about ordering one of several available “part kits” put out by the company. The others being the San Ildefonso, the Nuestra Señora del Pilar, and the Santisima Trinidad. I chose the Montañes because I like the type of ship, the size of the model, and the details of this particular kit the best.
I purchased the first of six Packs, as OcCre calls them, and plan on buying them as needed for the build. However, building from the packs is really no different in terms of materials, fittings, and instructions, as the full kit. You just don’t have to pay for it all at once, though it ends up costing you more, mostly due to the ship charges.
