Peter,
did you remember to get your scalpel blades? You'll certainly need them!
I used to use cornflake packets to stiffen up all the bulkheads/frames/decks, and an old drawer front as a building board. I found that UHU glue was the best ........................
I never managed to finish any of the real biggie ship models. The largest I did manage to complete was the Rjurik - also by GPM, I think. You need a lot of space ( and commitment ) to finish this. The largest I ever started was the Yamato - got quite a way with that, but the vast number of AA guns beat me!

Courier delivered this - no box, but all parts on sprue, instructions & decals332702

Now, IF I had the box, it would look like this ( yes, it is 1/48 )
332701
One of those on my want list ( but not at retail price! ). At just over £20 delivered, I think I'm quite happy with that! More like a short-run, model, but looks good - another out of the ordinary build for me

That's a nice pile of model-kits you got there Alan :smiling6:
Just curious, when finished are you planning to hang them up, display them on a shelf together or ... ?
They take up quite some space in 1/32, and I'm wondering how others manage it :smiling5:
Cheers, Steven

These aerials are great, one problem the aerial top section has to be sanded to fit into the base, and there is only about 2 mm entry depth.
Also have on order.

John,
nice haul! - ..............have any of them individual track links? - am I detecting a mild whiff of masochism? :thinking:
Dave
Dave , yes !!!!!!!!! But I am determined to do them . One has the normal set up, top run, bottom run followed by 4 at each end. Read one review where the reviewer said they were terrible and he couldn't get any sag. Had a look to night at the mouldings, very clean, and on the armored car plastic tyres . Price wise about £8 for the car.
John .
