Re: 1/700 Aoshima HMS Dorsetshire (retooled)
Interesting responses, thank you. Seems like this is really the first instance of a ship being re-tooled before re-release of the same kit.
Interesting that the airplane community merited a couple of fixes but errors like the New York/Texas hull, Hornet hull, Wasp underscale kit, Tamiya Enterprise/Hornet underscale kit did not.
I am astounded that Aoshima fixed the hull for the Norfolk kit. Has this ever happened before? I cannot recall any time that a major model company fixed an error they made. Actually,now that I sit and think about it, Trumpeter fixed the hull from their Hornet before releasing the Enterprise and Yorktown. That took how many years? Any other instances?
Is it probable that this kit now shares the Norfolk hull and water line plate plus has a retooled main deck to fit the longer Norfolk hull? I assume all the other parts remain unchained from the original kit. HS has yet to post the kit contents pics,
