update 31st July,
well where were we? Oh, right, yep, Pom Poms!
Okay, so according to my references the pom poms should scale out to 14.3mm across
the kit parts come in fairly close
but! the fancy pants 1/350 WEM replacement pom poms that I bought with the intention of replacing the kit parts only come in at around 12.5mm!
This makes them more suitable to 1/400 scale!
So I abandoned my plans to go with the WEM pom poms, and referred to the Eduard set
ah, that's better!
so I've started building all 6 pom poms available in the set. The first 2 are for practice and spares, just in case I ruin one of the 'good ones'
Now, before you all start saying that I've got the numbers back to front, on the other side of the timber, the numbers run in the correct order
then you've got to make 24 of these little blighters! You know, they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting a different result. Well, I think this comes pretty close.
and here's where we're at so far...
Thanks for looking
Oh, and if anyone's after a set of 1/350, ahem, I mean 1/400 WEM pom poms, PM me.
