I am thinking of building a floaty thing and would appreciate the thoughts of the boat/ship builders here. I don,t want something huge but I don't want anything too small and looking about at some kits 1/144 scale seems about the size for me. Revell seem to have a few kits that size that have caught my attention so what is the general opinion of them? About 20 years ago I built a Sergal kit of the Bounty, well ,to say it was a kit seemed to me to be a contradiction in terms as it was a box of wood with only the keel and a few bulheads made from laser cut ply, a mile of thread and some photo etch parts but I managed to build it so something plastic will, in my opinion be a bit easier. As my first try I intend to build it out of the box, painted but not weathered and sitting on a stand. All opinions good or bad would be greatly appreciated.
