Im new to ship modeling and new to PE, so I jumped in with both feet into a pile of .
Now the Hood in 1/350 scale seemed like a good choice, simple lines and impressive when completed. This is true if you buy Trumpeter or Heller, but I had to go with Lindberg
WEM helps alot and some good painting helps. So here is my tip, buy quality and thats what you get, and a pair of embrroidery scissors for the PE set works wonders, hope this helps.
