when will you have photos?
In fact I'm simultaneously working on TWO Missouris:
- a 1:700 scale Very Fire kit : cut to waterline and displayed as in September 2d during the signing ceremony.
- a 1:350 scale Joy Yard kit: also cut it to the waterline and will display in a diorama during the famous kamikaze attack of April 11th, 1945. Many crew members at the design stage now...
Both kits are built mainly out of the box except I'll replace all the Bofors, Oerlikons, gun directors and other small fittings with custom designed 3D printing. The Joy Yard Bofors are absolutely superb, but close to a nightmare to assemble with their microscopic parts: my direct printings are easier to assemble with the same level of detail. Same occurs with the very Fire guns.
ETA well into 2022.
