After the recent comments re 1/32 Lberators, pro and con, I have to reflect on my own mental turmoil re large scale projects.
I still have a couple of very nice biplane projects to complete, into the autumn (not WnW!). However, the ship-building bug has been working on me again for awhile, and I’m presently considering the 1/78 17th century Sovereign of the Seas, one of the most highly decorated and expensive ships ever built.
I have to consider (1) whether to commit to a two year project at the expense of everything else (recent biplane projects having given me a new enthusiasm for traditional modelling in quarter scale) and (2) can I justify £700+ for the project.
I know exactly what such a project would entail, the focus, the technical skill set, the exacting nature of the process (600+ lost-wax castings in bronze, for example)….
Answers on a postcard, please….
