Am I right, is this a complete retool and not a repop of an earlier kit?

Cheers

Si, I have found nothing supporting "new tooling" or not yet. Tough to say one way or the other until someone who is intimate with the first pop looks at this one!

I am inclined to think it is totally new. They are doing more than one of these

I still have most of a partially constructed Pola. I don't know how much the old Pola and Zara had in common. But the sprues here look nothing like the sprues in Pola's box.

Thanks guys,

Sounds hopeful, they are elegant looking ships, would be very tempted if trumpy have made a decent fist of her.

Cheers

Si.
