    You are fortunate to be able to buy these models. In the U.S. shipping makes it prohibitive, and they just don't have a distribution network............Aaargh!

    I have to get the models shipped to Norway...and it can take 3-4 weeks to get them :)

    Brought the LEFH with me out offshore...
    The building conditions are note very large in my cabin on the oilrig :)
    But i find much pleasure doing some modelling no matter what.

    Here is my workbench in my cabin...

    Building the front shield was fun actually :)
    Very well designed, all parts fit very well of course....it a DrafModel :)

    Only thing was that i had forgotten to bring with me my laser nuts..so I had to cut out all the nuts and boltheads with the knife...picky work :)

    One week left out at sea...and some more parts to come

    Go to be careful cutting your nuts at sea!! I imagine they came out very accurate though. Have fun at sea, may the wind be at your back !! :)
