Ahoy, maties,

Hi James,

You are most welcome, I will try to keep up a steady pace to help it grow.

I really like the Pit Road/Sky Wave kits, they offer a good value for the old hobby dollar with these two in one kits and the large number of subjects available make it possible to build up a nice collection of finished projects that can be as detailed as the modeler wants to invest time and work in them. Being in the divine scale also makes displaying them a much less space consuming situation as well.

Very nice write up, I guess I've been a fan of IJN from the beginning, and while there's loads from Pitroad, I cannot remember where I saw them, but the kit has 3 small ships, as with the Pitroad offering you also get quite a lot of left overs, the good thing is, on some models, the pieces are moulded into the plastic itself, with Pitroad, they offer these tiny pieces, I just wish someone somewhere would sell spare parts for models.
