Re: Leicester Models
Dan, the model you have is the Japanese Chitose after conversion and was originally a "Trafalgar" 1/1200 scale model. All Trafalgar models were subsumed into MY Models including the Japanese battleship Satsuma. At the time of first production of Trafalgar models (about 20 years ago) these ships were not obtainable new from any other source. I think I bought Satsuma at a Wellow Ship Show in the UK that you attended and Mick Yarrow had taken on Trafalgar models some years before that. I have still not built the kit of Satsuma. I decided to convert a Navis Aki instead!
i have seen what Sammelhafen had to offer. but that seems to be a very small listing of what Leicester used to offer. I have an IJN Light Carrier that i would like to identify that i believe is a Leicester model. The number on the bottom is 1239.
