I have corrected the "sagging" condition on the Hasegawa hulls noted by Dan K in his review. It is a little more difficult than other hulls I have done due to the molding shape and thinner wall hull sides in the forecastle area. Send me a PM if interested in trying this.

I have a couple of the Hasegawa Asashios... I should look to see how badly the hulls are sagging.

I know that the Aoshima Takao has a really badly hogged hull that I completely screwed up on my first attempt to straighten it (leading to me having to buy another kit, when all I needed was the hull).

I would prefer to avoid that with the Asashio kits.
