PW, as with any new entry into a venture that requires, in this case, modeling skill, which you obviously have already, be careful not to overload your self on the first few kits when it comes to detailing and building difficulties. Start simple and work your way up. I hate to see someone get discouraged and some ship models are definitely capable of that! Lol.


Man! That's great advice that applies to SO MANY things! Good

My 1/700 destroyer arrived today and I have to say I am a bit taken aback by the small size. The parts are so tiny! I will definitely be wearing my magnifying glasses to work on this.Wink

I'll start a new thread when I get going on it. I may need some advice from you old salts as I go. Laughing

1:720 for a destroyer? TINY! bug eye

It's a small scale for battleships and carriers. But for small ships like your destroyer, it is too small, even for me. Get those goggles out for sure.
