Glade you like it. Does anyone know what the deck camber should be?
Just want to know what the deck camber was. In photos it shows to be very pronounced . I plan to replace the decks with a corrected camber. There are photos of the deck guns and torpedo tubes that show the camber, if I have to it will be to figure it out using the photos.
I recieved my kit 14 days after purchase from China and I am very happy. There was an earlier post about this kit I thought I would update it. This is a very sturdy kit the hull has printed in braces but the detail on the hull is still very nice, in fact all the printed parts are very nice. There was some discussion about the camber on the actual ship I wasn't quite sure what was meant but my kit does have a noticable slight upward and downward curve #1 and #2 funnels, looks nice. It is very tightly packed and the middle piece of the main deck was a little warpped which I was concerned about so I decided to due a quick test fit of all three deck pieces they went down vey fast, easy, with no noticable gaps between themselves or the hull!The rest of the pieces are very nice with metal barrels for the 3" guns, but I beleive I will still replace them with other 3d printed pieces from Shapeways or others. The instructions are 81/2x 11 color sheets well actually the only color on them are the gold color for all the PE/metal pieces. The instructions are large pictures of the ship with call out numbers and lines that point out where things should go. PE looks good but the bollards are individual brass pieces and very small and looks like 16 of them! Downside no decals or painting guides or images. Overall very pleased with the kit. Also included are images of the kits they have available Besides the Tribal, Askold, Novgorod, Z-43, and aurora they also show the Chinese version of Aurora Chung King a Shimakaze (!!!!) and a SMS Seydlitz (BIG) all in 1/200. I'm checking on the Shimakaze right now and let you know if it's available
