Re: Scharnhorst: Dragon vs. Trumpeter
I have this kit and it's as you've read. There's simply too many pieces that don't need to be there. I have the original 1943 release, not the 1941 version. I've got it about 30-40% complete sitting inside the box for over 5 years just because I dont have the patience for the complexity.
I plan on buying a 1/200 scale scharnhorst if it represents the ship in 1943, hopefully I dont get shot bringing home a model that big (the 1/200 Rodney got me in great trouble )
I have a 1943 1/350 Dragon Scharnhorst in my stash. I have read that some people believe that this kit is very difficult to build. Is it unbuildable to the point that I might want to consider one of the new Trumpeter (1/200 or 1/350 down the road) kits?
