    I've seen this kit in 1/200. Is it also available in 1/100? Some of Halinski's other submarine kits are available in both scales, so i'm hoping this one is too.

    Failing that, is the print quality good enough on Halinski kits to take a 10:1 englargement? I want to enlarge and build the conning tower in 1/20 scale.

    I've enlarged a 1/100 kit to 1/20 (5:1) and found it to be satisfactory, but i'm leery about a 10:1 enlargement, so i'd prefer to find a 1/100 kit.

    Thanks for any info. :)

    I guess, the only way to know is to try it out, after all, how much do you have to loose ?
    One quistion, are you rescaling it yourself ? If you do you can always do some touching up in Photoshop or whatever programm you're using, if necessary.
    Good luck

    so, it does exist in 1/100. Thanks.

    But, yikes the price! 22 euro....so much, when other Halinski 1/100 sub kits are around $9US. :(
