I'm seriously tempted to do this conversion just as a demonstration of the similarities between the RN U- and T-classes. I also need to compare against the RN S-class - another historic group, whose similarities to the U-class might be even greater.
In any case, the crude Mirage mold would need a lot of detailing/extra TLC to look like anything decent, to begin with!
Have you ever seen the upgrade PE set that was sometimes included with this kit? I've seen completed builds which presumably used it, but was still pretty unimpressed with whatever improvement it supposedly added.)
