I built the ATF WW2 camo version of this kit, and I must say that it was one of the best and most satisfying builds I have yet completed. I believe that it went together very easily, and very well and what seemed like a simple ship certainly built up into a little gem!

To make it even better, follow Mike McCabe's build of the ATF which takes you step by step through the whole assembly - stress free modelling!

Hi Mark and Peter

And there's Rob's salvage dio too!
Having the pleasure of seeing all three Navajo's in Telford last year, I must say that it is difficult to say which was best... they all were!
Good review Mark!

Good job Harry

I have the later version of this cutter and it is a beauty. Harry's work is first class.

Thanks for the kind words, they are always appreciated!!
Hope you enjoy the kit as much as I enjoyed making the master.
I think Peter is correct, this is my best effort to-date.
