Well its a long story but...

A few years ago (gosh! has it beeb THAT long?!) an anon resin maker advertised on Steelnavy that he was looking for help doing a prototype 350th scale Exeter and needed assistance. I volunteered to help said person. Based on what the person liked when looking at my Tolovana, he concluded that I'd be a good person to help him do a master model. So I geared up to crank out two or three 350th scale Exeters.
After about a week the person dropped off the end of the earth and I never heard from him again. I figured he was just on vacation or something so I continued amassing balsa for hulls which is cheap anyway. As I was working my old job and building models on the night shift I lost track of it. Nevertheless, I have enough balsa, PE and rods/tubes to churn out a decent Exe. And my 350th Hood DOES need an escort, so... "As sunk" is always depressing so I may go for a River Plate or Empire Cruise scheme.
