Re: Aurora and Pyro Yamato kits N/T OK, so someone had to ask the question.
The Pyro 1/1200 lineup was amazing, several ships represented in each model, accurate of none. The asymmetrical YAMATO, Pre-War guess of a made up SHOKAKU (SYOKAKU), and NORTH CAROLINA and MASSACHUSETTES same model with twin funnels, AA size 5" guns and SoDak size hull. ESSEXs were surprisingly not too bad. Lindburg re-introduced the line a few years ago!. I didn't have the crazy Aurora's, mine all looked normal to me. Had the Heller "MAINE", always wondered why it looked like OLYMPIA. I seem to have had many of these listed above proudly in my collection. Thanks for the memories!
The Revell CONSTITUTION seems to have met the test of time in goodies (had several, but never assembled up to their potential.)
So we've had the question below what was your thoughts on the 1st most accurate ship model, so what do you think is most INACCURATE model you ever had?
Don't get me wrong, I love Airfix and their range of 1/600 scale vessels (I think I built most of them) but my vote on the most inaccurately proportioned ship model ever was their BISMARCK and TIRPITZ. I'd be interested to hear how they got 'em so wrong.
Love you Airfix.
