In a shock development I recently acquired on eBay a batch of 1/1200 scale ships. Well OK then, another batch of 1/1200 ships. This lot was all plastic kits and includes yet more Scharnhorsts, Bismarcks, KGVs, New Jerseys and (of course!) Yamatos! There are also three of the Esci/Revell Littorio class BBs and a few other bits.
So what to do with them all? I already have all three Littorio class BBs (in balsa) so I clearly need a fourth - the never-completed Impero. And I have plans for the other two. Oh yes indeed.
Main turrets removed and ready for undercoating.David Crook. This gives me all five ships of this class!
