Re: CC Lee models - HMS Aurora
I ought to have said: The incomplete model is available for a nominal sum+postage from UK (tracked+signed).
I got this with a view to doing some after market mods. To start with, CC Lee completely failed to understand the RN cruiser 'knuckle' which was a shame and then they had the foremast missing a major part. The rest of the model was a basis for kit bashing, and in that respect not bad. The model was sourced from Australia. I also bought the 1/300 OHP,which I gave to a charity, though I reckon it wasn't a bad kit. The reason for that was moving to 1/350 scale models ships.
I had several CC Lee kits back in the 1990's. One was a poor copy of Tamiya's 1/350 Musashi. The molding was soft, the hull just didn't seem as rigid or stable as the Tamiya Yamato one that I had. It also had sink holes in areas that were visible (ie. 18" gun blast bags). The other kits were an 1/300 scale Australian Oliver Hazard FFG, the Adelaide and the 1/300 Aurora. Those kits seem decent. Early Revell quality and details sounds about right.
so its actually decent for its age your saying? kinda like the old classic Revell stuff?
I have their HMS Aurora. Two actually. Decent kit though hardly state of the art. In 300 scale as I recall. Always been hard to find.
