  1. Have not heard of that manufacturer before (Pit Road), but you've sure done her proud. I've tried my hand at a few ships, but they definitely don't stand up to the craftsmanship displayed here. Very nice job, sir. iModeler is the best user-friendly modeling site I've yet to'll like it here.

  2. Thank you Craig, pit road is a Japanese company in association with trumpeter, the models sell principally in japan, this kit is very good, but he needs the changes that I did, regards

  3. Hello Anthony...I'm primarily an aircraft modeler with little experience building ships but I recognize the results of fine modeling craftsmanship as seen in all three ship builds you posted. All very nicely done and well detailed. I'm delighted to see your excellent work here on imodeler and look forward to seeing more. Welcome aboard.
