As we know, Michael was building his 1/200 Nelson here and IMHO did a pretty good job of "softening" the plating effect, not sure if he ever finished it though...
I think the plating should be just visible at 1/200 (and even less so at 1/350), but it's "trench like" on this release from Trumpy. (Let's not talk about their 1/350 Hood either )Still, not sure I'd have the cahuna's to take on a 1/200 let alone the budget or space to do one
I know this is still but are there any good references for the Nelson class that you know of?
My LHS has added the 1/350 Nelson/Rodney to their pre-orders page-can feel the goose bumps already!
