    Here is another collection of my finished builds. I had this thing for 6 years it is the only trumpeter kit i have to my collection. Very expensive kit. I mean to tell you these trumpeter kit6s are very very expensive in todays econmy it is hard to efford. My spouse bought this for me on my 67th Birthday when I first got the kit I was overwhelmed with excitement. It brought back memories to me it reminded me of the okld 1965 issue kit from Revell in the scale of 1/72. This kit was packed with detail these Trumpeter kits are very well done but over priced for all the money China says we ore them us modlers are paying them back. Here is the condor.

    thank you for your reply on the scourge of the atlantic, LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL At a rough guess I have over 700 models that are completed the ones i have collected over the years in my stash pile for futre builds around 400 kits. I will never live long enough to build them all.

    Very nice Boats. The landing gear must be pretty stressed on that one. It looks quite delicate.
