Thanks Tim... whoaooooooo...this is going to be one big honker of a kit in 1/200 scale. Almost $600 "smackers" for this baby!

Hasn't this been announced, and a test shot on display at a model/toy show from months ago? Controversy over bow shape - possibly too much rake!

I also would like to see a good, detailed pic of the bow. The rest looks pretty good from what I've seen.

reports are conflicting: some say there's way too much rake on the bow, others say it's a photographic distortion.

Yet others say Trumpeter have mirrored the hull, when in reality, many doors, plating and portholes were asymmetrical.

Only time will tell as physical examples become available.

This is the best (and only) profile view so far, and it's taken from slightly higher than deck level. The stem certainly displays too much rake, but that may be because of the angle, and a wide-angle lens. Click on the model picture for enlargement:

Oh baby!!! Is this my next build??!!

A whopping 53 inches long! Holy Shi-batz-bah!! Clear the decks baby, I'm coming in for a landing!

And OMG, it's only a pre-order price of 400 clams...I suppose I don't need to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner for the next month or three. Hmmmm, decisions, decisions, decisions.

I'd love to see this with a detailed interior of the boilers and engine rooms, but that's just me.

400 clams (USD) and 53"s!

Too rich for my wallet! I'll stick with the Minicraft kit in 1/350. Only 200 yabbies (AUD )
