Wow! Nice work! I'm impressed. She's turning out to be a real work of art.

Txs Larry, appreciate your comment and I'm glad you like it
Looked at your Missouri...very nice...I have the 1/400 Kangnam in stock....seeing a 1/200 scale one helps defining mine ....when I'll be doing her ..and that is not yet...

when looking at some other modelers...I see "stretched sprue"....mmm can somebody tell me what that means
another request is...does anybody have or knows of a Leipsig class cruiser scale 1/400 for sale?...seen one for sale for 189.- Euro(DKM Nürnburg)....but I find that pretty expensive

Stretched sprue technique by Jim Baumann: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=37536

Sprue is the plastic "tree"/frame that your kit parts are attached to.

don't think it was as 1st commissioned as drawings don't show it & I have a june 9 1961 picture without that mast extension.

she already had a re-fit in '61...commissioned she was in '56...but probably not gonna try as I would have much to much problems adding it
