UK CA York [1941]
ruixilyy Suggestion: Please add longer mast to the ship. It will look much better. Thanks.

1/1800 US CA New Orleans[1942]
ruixilyy @ChucklesTF Yes, its FUD. FUD is great in detail but after some time the hull (especially for those narrow long hull like the cruisers) still tends to be bent to some extent. I have to use a hair dryer to make it straight (every several months).
ruixilyy New Orleans class CA Tuscaloosa. I add the top of the mast using plastic rod. It looks better with longer mast!
IJN Akashi, Taigei & Kashino 1/1800
ruixilyy The reprinted corrected scale items arrived two days ago. Here are the final results. I like this kind of auxiliary vessels! I would suggest that you may make the USS Vestal (repair ship), as well as the French submarine tender Jules Verne, and US seaplane tender Tangier.
ruixilyy @MastersofMilitary Probably I have to request a reprint of the set in the newly revised corrected dimension. The model designs are very sharp and so I do have high expectation for them.
ruixilyy Again, the IJN Kashino is wrong in scale. Kashino has the length of 137m, which should be about 7.6cm in 1/1800 scale. Now the model I received is 10cm long. It is about 2.4cm longer than what it should be! For the last ship in this set, IJN Akashi, the same issue: way way out of scale. IJN Akashi is 157m in length which should be about 8.7cm in 1/1800 scale. Now the model is 11.5cm in length, a 2.8cm longer than what it should be. For such expensive items I am totoally disappointed. Considering the great quality of the IJN Nisshin, Akatsushima and the Japanese destroyers Set I and II from the same designer, the Taigei set is really below the usual expectation .
ruixilyy Just received my FUD taigei set. Unfortunately Taigei is totally wrong in scale. IJN Taigei was later converted to IJN Ryuho so it should have the same dimension as Ryuho (which I also ordered and received today). The Ryuho model is correct in scale but Taigei is way too large/too long.

ruixilyy So what's the difference between this one and Sangamon? Already bought 4 Sangamon so I am wondering whether to order this one or not.
