    In the end of February, WG told me the Siebel Ferry will be released in May.

    I prefer plastic planes, then resin and finally metal. Thankfuly, I still have plastic models to buy while waiting for new models also in plastic 🙂

    Volumewise, the difference between a 1/300 model and another model representing the same object in 1/350 is almost 60%. These rules are made for small ships, and the bigger they are, the more difficult to play with them. Having larger ships in smaller scales seems logic to reduce such problems, but the balance between small and larger ships in other aspects is partially lost.

    To me is a disapointment, a Flower corvette in 1/300 is just above 20 cm, don’t seems too big to be in the game scale. Besides, if is not a WG original model, this should be clear to all, including the model source.

    Pictures may be upside down if uploaded from the Southern Hemisphere 🙂

    If I had experience with Photoshop or a similar software, would link, with lines, the parts included in the picture with the sprue to the picture with the finished model and all will understand where these parts need to be placed. Maybe someone pick the idea 🙂

    This is the basic structure, before the silicone was added.

    Volumewise, a 1/300 model is more than 50% bigger than a 1/350, its a huge difference for larger models.

    I made a few gluing some old sprue parts to make a structure, glued in a round disk cut from plasticard and covered with transparent silicone. Painted the base blue and added some white to the plume.

    You can see it as part of the 37mm gun.

    I’m from Portugal, work as a IT consultant and build models from several years, or decades 🙂 I got a Blood Red Skies set and currently I’m painting the models and waiting for the decals and, hopefully, for extra bases for other 1/200 planes I have.
