      Trumpeter 1/350th scale kit being built out of the box. She is a little something different. Her purpose, to carry 2 15″ guns. The kit looks pretty good in the box, accuracy?? I’m not sure how good it is for that, but knowing Trumpeter, there are some issues I’m sure. But the camo and uniqueness […]
