« on: March 06, 2010, 11:24:12 »
Walking on a fleemarket I saw something I was looking many years for.
A model kit from Heller No. 602 yes the "Jean Bart" also passible to build as "Utrecht" from Wijsmuller.

They don't build them like that anymore. Will you be starting a build thread for your project?

Will you detail and correct the kit for a Utrecht model or build it straight from the box Jack? Looking foreward to seeing it finished....Fred
