Scale 1/350 Smardan/Brutar II-Class River Patrol Monitor
This really is one of the best resin ships I've built. Superbly clear instructions, flawless casting and photoetch, and decals which are not only in register but conformed without any setting solution. The model is quick to build and easy to paint with all the parts fitting without any fettling being required. Just cut off the casting stubs and everything just slots into place. It's a tiny ship - the hull's less than 15cm long, and ideal if you've not got much display room. It's an unusual subject (though not considering Radu's origins), so will add interest to any collection. An ideal project if you're new to resin/ PE and don't mind breaking out the optivisor and tweezers. Care is needed as the PE parts are tiny but, with suitable diligence a great model can be made.
