Scorpio, I have lurked with my jaw hanging open in awe throughout this thread. I am looking forward to your build of the Rodney, since that is one of the kits sitting in my "to build someday" stack. I still think you have a time machine, replicator, and shrinking ray and went back to 1939, made a copy of the real thing and shrunk it to 1/200 size. You really should look into getting an article on this build published in one of the scale modelling magazines, such as Fine Scale Modeller. It would be enough to make the plastic snobs sit back and take notice.
