The general consensus is going to be "bigger is better."
Maybe not, but more worth the work. IBS and Nautilus have templates to drill out the holes, but only on the 72nd scale Revell. I guess it was deemed to be just too much work in a smaller scale. What you could do tho, would be to buy the 72nd scale drilling sheets and then scan them. Once you did that you could shrink them to your heart's delight to fit the Revhell Lionfish or Trump boat.
