Well there we are then, I actually finished a floaty thing :) 

The idea behind the kit is fantastic, the detail is actually not bad, but the amount of clean up needed on nearly every part is a bit depressing, and the decals are utter shite!

Other than that, it really is an enjoyable and fun build, I really do love this :) 

If I were to offer one piece of advice... Read through the instructions and actually split the build down into your own sub assemblies. That way, you aren't building and repainting, building and repainting... 

All finishes are Tamiya Acrylics 

I sort of like the stand idea, but I have another idea in mind now :)

Its not perfect, but its perfect for me... I am actually very chuffed with this build :) 

Thanks for watching and all advice offered :thumbsup:

That's turned out really well. I started one of these not long after it was first released, completed the hull, then lost interest. It's been languishing on the SoD ever since, maybe I ought to take it down, dust it off and get on with it.
