I have mentioned before the challenges of sourcing suitable 1/1200 scale warship models (see my earlier post). While searching for such things a while ago I noticed the Fulimi kit of the Matsu class destroyer going quite cheaply (about £2.50).
I should point out that prior to my acqusition of the John Hawes collection I was desperately short of cruisers!
Work has continued on the two below. The photo shows that I have carved off the surplus deck detail. More news soon as I settle in to some proper bodging.
