Want to buy or trade for HMV Floating Dry Dock kit - 1/250 scale.
Gotcha! Found one at a hobby site in Italy--probably the last one on the planet. Thanks to my friends at Facebook's Paper Model Ships group for getting me there.
The price was painful but then I remembered what my plastic modeler friends spend on a high-quality kit (a lot more!). Now I don't feel so bad.
I am, however, reminded of an old cartoon from one of the model railroader magazines. A fellow is in a hobby shop drooling over a brass engine. And the owner says, "This baby will cost you $299, a new dress, and dinner at a French restaurant."
The things we do for love. . . .
Love to see a picture when your done. Especially of such a rare model, and knowing it will get the attention it deserves.
