As it's resin, do you need to reinforce the floor joists in the modelling room before you start work on it?

More likely the living room as I will need the space. They also do a Beverly in 1/72 for the same price.

I'm a coward as it comes to resin kits. Stupid, really. And I'm tempted. But £175, while possibly being material cost most of it, is tough, in particular as I have to pay another 30% on top because of Boris.  :-\
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

There is also this Shorts Belfast if you can find it. It's what the resin model is based on.

The fuselage breakdown on that resin Belfast doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies.

There's at least this flying AN-225, with two turbines and four electric ducted fans:

You can always buy the 1/144 scale Beverly and Belfast.

I know many people are wary of resin kits, but there's no need to be. Some of  the better ones can be can be an easier build then a lot of mainstream kits, just don't start with Unicraft  :angel:  One of the smaller Planet or Anigrand kits are good starting points as long as you are interested in the subject  :thumbsup:
