Re: HMS Exeter, for Battle of the River Plate?
it is the mostly parts that need changing that can not be used !
Bummer-That's what I thought....maybe I can use the Aoshima one as an "update" or "detail" kit for the Matchbox beast. Thank you so much for the reply, TJ.
The Matchbox kit is the only 1/700 scale kit of Exeter which represents her 1939 configuration. All versions of the Aoshima kit, and the Niko and Samek resin kits, represent her after her post-River Plate repair and refit. Considerable effort and aftermarket items would be needed to back-date any of these.
just so-are any of the Aoshima kits suitable for her fit at the time? The old Matchbox kit is said to be, but its a bit crude. Or any other 1/700 kits suitable?
