This site has pics of the sprues. Does it look any good?

Hi Dan,

With what I can see from the photos it looks VERY good.

Of course I can only be more conclusive with the real parts on my workbench. I really like to compare it with the Dutch Zeven Provinciën class frigate, being a forerunner of the Sachsen class in many respects. The (resin) kit of this Zeven Provinciën is in my posession for quite a few years already.

Hi Maarten,

That's good to hear. I like the look of the Sachsen class. I haven"t done anything similar and I'm interested in getting one.

You did a good job on your resin ship. I can see the similarities between the two classes.

I've got a 3d printed ship to try at some point. It would be like a resin ship, but nowhere near as detailed or complicated as yours.

Dan

The kit looks very well designed and the detail seems very good. I'm surprised that there is no railing or safety nets around the flight deck with this kit. Snowman and TAKOM seem to have joined forces lately and are releasing a number of kits under their joint banners. What I don't understand is what Das Werk has to do with this project? I don't even see anything on the Das Werk Facebook page about this? I don't see anything that Snowman and TAKOM couldn't do on their own? Curious.

Yes, the lack of railings and especially safety nets does seem strange. Maybe they are planning a dedicated etch set if sales are good.

I've been looking over every photo I can find this week. There are a few mistakes and omissions, but nothing I'd call a deal breaker. So I ordered one. It should arrive in a week or two.

The boxart is identical to the Trumpeter one, so I'd wager they're the same.

Unusual move - the two has tended to compete rather than share molds.

I believe that's the old 1/350 Panda model
