Re: Best 1/700 County class
The Aoshima kits of Kent, Cornwall, Dorsetshire and Norfolk are good - but avoid the first Dorsetshire edition (052662 and 052686).
Tom's Modelworks has a fitting PE set for all four ships. I would recommend in addition brass barrels for the 8" and 4", new PomPom (e.g. FineMoulds), 0.5" MG (e.g 3D Model Parts) and new Walrus (FlyHawk). Perhaps also new HACS?
Probably, you have seen my earlier Kent post:
Thanks. I had heard the first Dorsetshire had some deficiencies. Now that I have the kit numbers I'll avoid them. And thanks for the aftermarket recommendations.
