Pontos Super Detail Sets - Worth the Investment?
Posted by Michael McMurtrey on November 25, 2022, 15:24:24
Having just acquired Trumpeterís 1/350 U.S.S. Texas, Iím considering some aftermarket upgrades and came upon a description of the Pontos set and, as I am not a ship guy, Iím wondering if itís worth spending nearly 3 times what I paid for the kit for what appears to be an extremely complicated (but extremely detailed) accessory that replaces much of the original plastic.
The ship means a lot to me, and not just because Iím a native Texan or because of her historic significance. I visited the ship twice over 60 years ago when a junior high school student and have long wanted a model. Also, a former college girlfriend was the lead Texas Parks Department historian for a past renovation, so thereís a great deal of sentiment involved in building a model that will do the ship justice.
