I stumbled across them by accident while placing an order. Cherry at Orange Hobby has informed me that they are not quite ready yet but should be available in a week or two. As Chewitt has said, they would look nice in a harbour scene and add something a little different.

A "Coming soon" section for maritime specific modelling would be good.

Another ship that has just been released is the Hasegawa 1:350 HEIAN MARU submarine depot ship, which would be an interesting build,especially suitable for a diorama with several I class boats around it.

Photoetch from WEM is on top of my list of things to do !!!

As for HMS Unicorn, I will certainly get a few in when they are ready. She raised my eyebrows when I saw her on the list. I think she will be quite an interesting ship!!

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your coments on Brians PE work. He does some of the best work I have seen. The 1/700 Ratlines he drew up for me are just fantastic.

I am also sending Dave a review sample of the 1/350 SMS Vulkan with 5 sheets of PE. That should keep him busy for a while.

Dave, I think I will stick in my 1/700 Ratlines in the box for you to review.

I just got this morning a e-mail shot from a German on-line shop. They have it in stock now.

Looks really nice. A lot of fun to build and admire afterwards.

Well spotted Chris. WIll have to get the IJN Carrier set as no-one has released anything for the Shokaku or Hiryu yet, and the Fujimi sets are long OOP.
