Which Graf Spee is best?

6 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I'm going to tackle my first shop model, and I've set my sights on the 1/350 Graf Spee. There are two kits that scale, an Acadamy and a Trumpeter. Does anyone know which us the better kit? Opinions?

Thanks!

I believe both are new tools of this subject. That said AFAIK either is sufficient. I'm not much of a ship builder so I'd peruse this site:

I did read a few reviews off google, but they all sound exactly alike. I was hoping for someone who's built one to share their thoughts on it/them.

Well, a buddy of mine settled this for me by offering a 1/350 Tamiya Bismarck for dirt cheap! Are there any tips or tricks I should know? Ships are new territory for me.

Thanks!

Good score! Actually, if you can find copies of "Building & Detailing Scale Ship Models" & "The Basics of Ship Modeling" both by Mike Ashey, they'll really help you out. And definately go over to Model Shipwrights on Kitmaker. There is a wealth of knowledge on ship modeling over there, and some very good builders.
