    Tamiya did a too small a scale!
    In 1/72 scale it would be 6' long mine in 1/32 scale will be close on 13'6" & fully working!
    Apart from that, Lindberg is releasing 2 Japanese boats in 1/72 scale in 2008 which will make the type VII in 1/72 look very small :cool:
    Plus a Chinese company Soar has released a I-400 sub in 1/144scale

    Wow! They are the company that put out the 1/35 Dora railway gun. Lots of cool stuff on their website. No paper though :cry:

    Your English is better than our Thai! The wintergarden is the deck where the anti-aircraft guns are.

    Will you sell this model as a kit?

    It is the deck behind the conning tower where the anti-aircraft guns are.
    Are you selling this model kit?

    Nice! Is it going to be a full-vertor document? Or will there be bitmaps? Also just curious if you are going to do a great amount of weathering to the colour...
