Having always wanted to build one of these handsome little coastal battleships, I jumped at the Fairy Kikaku kit, not knowing much about them. Boy, I should have just scratchbuilt and probably still will.

I'll let you draw your own conclusions, since I think what they shipped is indeed a ship of some sort. Yes, the hull is supposed to be in 3 pieces.... ugh. At least it didn't cost much.

Thank you for the review.

I was tempted to get the kit, but now I think I'll pass. I'm not that desperate... :wave_1:

Yeah, sadly it's that bad.

I want to build GV badly, but I guess I will have to wait until Combrig bails us out

This is why I won't risk a resin kit sight unseen.

Very interesting subject.
But my first try of resin casting was much better than this.
