Time for another destroyer, this time full hull, so thankfully no seascape ;) Kit itself looks like this:


For now, I just whacked it all into my 'dry dock' and I'm going to attack it with the saw soon.


Hull casting is very nice, detail of the deck is crisp ( linoleum part of the deck comes as PE ), only downside of it is hull plating, but nothing that can't be solved swiftly.

Some pics of the hull:

Well Rainbow models aren't for faint hearted ;)  But their PE actually forgives a lot. Many other ones disintegrate if you happen to bend  something in the wrong direction and try to bend it back. These don't. After Nagatsuki I recommend their kits to anyone who's not afraid of nearly 100% PE model.

Because PE is good fun :)  I grew up on paper models, so to me PE stuff is not flimsy, compared with paper its rock solid :)

Plus that's just means to an end. The best part of a model is painting it, and then the weathering, everything else is just build up to it. 

Good magnifying glass built into a lamp, steady hand and good tweezers, these are the essentials, that and practice ;)
