Re: Trade 1/400 Colbert for 1/400 De Grasse. Anyone?
Thank you for your thoughts, David.
My plan is to go way further, and I need exactly De Grasse kit. Round stern and no inflex on the bow are important hull features in my project. I could, of course, tweak Colbert hull in those respects, but I have little time on that. Kit trade is more attractive for me.
I have the De Grasse that I think I bought off ebay a few years ago already built but has damaged hull bow & over painted. will repair hull & rebuild from the main decks up using the naval drawings from the hacked French naval site. will modify my 3rd Colbert into the command ship De Grasse version by extending the hull to right length & correct shape of the stern & bow. you could try that if can't get a De Grasse model.
I have Heller 1/400 Colbert that I want to trade for Heller 1/400 De Grasse. My kit is opened and few parts are off the sprues, but box is in good condition and parts are complete.
I think it is appropriate to use Airmail shipping with tracking, and to mutually absorb shipping costs.
