|Destroyers are fun to build. There aren't too large and they won't take much time to finish unlike say...an aircraft carrier. The same goes with my Panda USS Cole. This ship is easy to build. The fit is good and the price is right. The photoetch however needs a lot of improvement. However, since I wanted it done out of the box, I had to content myself with it.|
|I wanted to make the USS Cole at a base with rough seas. This project was inspired by the latest article of Rusty White about making realistic waves. I molded the waves using sculpey modeling compound. I fit my ship from time to time to see how it looked. Then I sliced it in six parts. Why? I had to make sure it would fit my oven toaster.||
|After baking two parts at a time for 1 minute, it was done.
Now, I can simply glue it in place as seen below.
|I liked this kit. It's not expensive, it's challenging especially if you use the kit-provided photoetch (to stay In-the-Box) and its really fun to build.|
