  1. What about Revell's Aida (AIDAblu, AIDAsol, AIDAmar, or AIDAstella) cruise liner? Their modern design and livery will contrast against the Cunard elegance! https://www.revell.de/en/products/model-building/ships/civilian-ships/id/05230.html.
  2. Too elaborate for my taste, I think the simpler the better, especially for modern vessels. I have some 'plain' brushed aluminium stand offs, from ebay for about £1.50 each, and just cut a slot to suit the keel size. Available in different diameters & heights, colours, etc

  4. Instruction sheet http://manuals.hobbico.com/rvl/80-5812.pdf [Lots of Revell's instruction leaflet pdf downloads are here https://www.revell.com/support/instructions.html, search on the kit number] And looking for the decals - Kingkit sold me the kit without them - for the Revell ETV Kustwacht Waker (Netherlands coast guard vessel in 1:200) kit #05240. Anybody print them for us, if I scale and tidy up the images above, thanks in advance
  5. Sure I've seen one of the manufacturers with generic 1:400 'plain' deck sheeting? (First search result on ebay attached, item#112413436704) ps Remember to use the off cuts and centre cut out pieces from the deck kit ... pps He's had more ships than Cunard:-)
  6. Revell AIDA Luna

    Wish they'd re-issue the PE kit (# 00717) for this kit - everybody is hunting for it.

    Sat 16th Sep Puffer VIC32 at North Pier Oban last night, Fri 15th. She's still there as I write - if you are patient you'll get a view - but may change at any time, she's off home down to Crinan for the Winter. Keep an eye on her on one of Oban webcam's - wait until it swings around to the left off the new pontoons view - the puffer is at the North end of the Pier. https://www.oban.org.uk/northpierpontoonswebcam/ ps screengrab added 11:28 - and she's also on AIS now too :-)
  12. Got an offer to save postage from Shapeways - it is usually pretty expensive - with a 25USD purchase though, until September 24.
  13. CMS Colombo Express - 1/700 by Revell
