    The bad news is that I’ve suddenly found myself with much more work on my hands than I have time. So this project will have to wait for a while – probably until, at least, the end of April.

    Still, I’m tempted to buy the model now, just to have it around for when I finally get some time to look at it.

    f2k,

    I completely understand the too many projects dilemma. As for the UK distributor who I bought a second kit from I cannot recommend them. First they said they shipped in early September...then they said they did not ship as they were out of stock (this after taking my money at the beginning of September)...then they said they found the kit I bought but they had sent it to another customer in the states who also bought one (in fact they sent both of them there)...so know they are trying to sort out what to do.

    I would recommend buying the kit as the producer [Revell] has pulled all their 1:72 naval kits and they are starting to go for really crazy prices on e-Bay (especially the U-Boat models).

    Cheers,

    CB

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. It really sucks when that sort of thing happen. But what can you do...?

    Yeah, I might just go ahead and order the box, just to have it on hand when I get the time to work on it. But for now, I’ve got a lot of Germans to paint...

    Uh, uh , uh...!

    * Jumps up and down like a kid in a candy-store *

    Guess what the nice mailman had for me today... Oh yes, my very own H.M.C.S. Snowberry kit! I couldn't have been happier if he had let me lose in a LEGO shop for five minutes!



    One cool thing is that it arrived in the original Revell packing, judging from the logo on the side of the package. And everything was completely sealed - something that the box of my old kit wasn't.

    One thing that that I do wonder about, however, is the fact that the content of the box doesn't seem to be quite what I remember from last time. The rigging, for example, is different. As is the chain. Didn't Revell re-cut the set at some point in time? Perhaps, then, my old kit was one of the original kits.

    Let me tell you, I've got such an itching in my fingers to start gluing. Better put the kit away for now - I've still got a lot of Germans that needs to be painted before January...

    The original issue had much more to offer. Parts and markings and instructions to build three different ships and a very detailed booklet as a modeling resource.

    Sir, I just wanted to say this is amazing! I have the H.M.C.S. Snowberry kit at home. I haven't built it because I was unsure as to which Corvette I wanted to make. That and I want to ensure I do a top job!

    If I can achieve half of what you have, I would be very proud of my finished kit.

    Well I have re-opened my log to repair the broken Photobucket links, another PLOG with loads of images.

    The long painting war continues...
