: It is a strange scale. Not quite the 1/1000 I
: want and too big to mix with 1/1250.
: Moreover, the models are much less detailed
: than most 1/1250 versions. However, they are
: vastly less expensive, very forgiving of my
: bumbling fingers, and finished well enough
: to make impressive displays--at least for
: the most part. Chris has sent me a few
: dozen, and they help make the liquidation of
: my 1/1250 stash more tolerable. For me, it
: is time to let go of many things, though I
: will always remain a collector at heart.
: There is no turning that off. I also have
: many F-Toys, Atlas, and Kreigschiffe models,
: which are very nice indeed and can rival
: many 1/1250 models. The 1/2000 F-Toy range
: is better than many 1/2400 models, though
: perhaps a bit much to assemble for one who
: has more thumbs than fingers. Still, it is
: fun to give it a go! Who says the hobby is
: dying? It is changing and evolving, and with
: these new lines I see a bright future. Every
: week, something new comes out, and I could
: not be happier with the state of miniature
: ship collecting.
: George/ the VERY slow and lame
: P.S.: I hope one of you will post pictures
: of some Eaglemoss models. I cannot seem to
: master the task any longer, which has become
: an all too typical occurrence. My brain is
: withering away, or so they tell me. Soon
: enough, I might decline enough to become a
: Republican... Yeah, still irreverent.
