From Shapeways N/T
For those of you (like me) who had given up hope of acquiring the long OOP Trident model of the Modified Budapest with the 15" howitzer in place of the forward turret, and were contemplating modifying a Navis model - now you don't have to do it. FPmodels has just issued one and it is beyond "nice". The masts are only slightly out of scale, but closer to scale than most, and the model is really good. Yes, you'll have to wash and prep it and then paint it. I got mine from Shapeways yesterday and bathed it and it now in my spray box with its first coat of primer and it is looking good. He also has a series of the early A-H cruisers and torpedoboats in 1/1200 and 1/1250 scale. Get the versions without masts on those as they are "clunkier than those on Budapest. Still, all nicely rendered models.
