Live from Telford: Trumpeter naval kits
Trumpeter have been showing their new-tool 1/200 scale kit of the battlecruiser HMS Hood. It looked like an amazingly big, stunningly detailed kit of a truly beautiful ship. I must say that the presentaiton model has left a lasting impression.
Another naval kit on display was the 1/48 scale DKM U-Boat Type VIIC, U-552. Also a haw-dropping model with full interior and the the optional starboard hull moulded in transparent plastic to enable viewing of all the goodies inside.

A 1/48th scale U-Boat...? Must be huge. Looks good, too.
Yes they are huge - the U-boot is 1.40 metre in length, and the Hood only slightly shorter. Amazing models IMHO.
The sub sells for £329.00 from one trader here. Still, a real stunner.
The Hood could be something for me but roughly 1,40 metres...
