Re: New model USS THUBAN
Nice model. Where can one purchase one and what else is available in 1/1250?
USS THUBAN (AKA 68) was one of over thirty ANDROMEDA Class attack cargo ships built during WW II. This new model is produced by YESTRtoys, a relatively new producer of 3D plastic models. YESTRtoys produces models in a variety of different scales, including 1250.
The model is reasonably priced and comes complete and ready to paint, save for a little cleanup of excess sprue. The detail is every bit as good as Spider Navy and it's a worthwhile addition to any collection of WW II U.S. Navy ships.
I have painted it in Ms 32/8T but you have many choices because the ship was in Ms 21 in 1945, and sisters served in a variety of different measures including Ms 22, another easy pattern.
