Duguay Trouin (D611) – Heller 1/400
Greetings fellow modelers!
Some time ago I posted the Duquesne 1/400 from Heller (http://imodeler.com/2018/05/duquesne-d603-heller-1-400/) and I’ve already explained the problems that it gave to me, but with this one (which is for the same customer as the Duquesne) it was a total different story.
Ok, it has most of the same problems, but basic building was a little bit easier. However, the radar towers were too bad and I had to replace them with some scratch, specially the front one, which didn’t come at all. Also, the landing pad ant-fall nets were remade from scracth. As you can see, the result was really good and gave the ship a better look.
Paint was exactly the same as the Duquesne, but the weathering was a little bit heavier.
I’m sorry for the short review, but since it’s very similar to the Duquesne, I think that not too much is left to say.
In conclusion, another hard to build model, not suitable for beginners, which needs a lot of extra work in order to make it look good.
Hope you like it!
