It looks an absolutely stunning set, but alas if you have my kind of skill-set, using the Italeri kit is like trying to make a silk-purse out of a sows ear I started the Italeri kit earlier this year, but gave up when I realised how much work building it involved, let alone the corrections necessary.

Now, if they'd released this in 1/48 so we could use it on the Academy kit......

That is great to hear a set in 1/48th, lets hope the also do the PE in the scale. I have a good sized handful of the 1/48th SeaKings including the Japanese boxing.
