So I just finished the wonderful model.

Image result for 1/700 hood

I enjoyed it!! This kit is as close to the real thing as it gets! I haven't gotten to taking pics of the Hood yet but I will include those later. I have been impressed with Trumpeter (before I had done the Water Line series models), this was the amount of detail that I absolutely love!! 

I tried to follow the HMS Hood's Associations changes but they got so small and minuscule that I just left some stuff as is. I don't follow 100% accuracy because I like to relax and enjoy the build but large blaring mistakes I fix. This kit had no glaring mistakes... Anyways anyone who builds 1/700 models I recommend this kit to anyone it is spot on and a real treat to build. I salute anyone who does 1/350 scale, oh man does that look difficult.:Smile_honoring:

Anyone who does scale models share your most recent projects!! This doesn't have to ship it can be 1/35 tanks, 1/48 aircraft. 

My next project will probably be

Good Luck and Happy Modeling!!

While not necessarily a model by the strictest definition of the word, I'm working on a 1:144 scale remote-controlled Aoba right now and am currently waiting on parts to arrive.

My next project after Aoba will be HMS York.

Here's a work-in-progress photo, I guess.

My most recent completion is a 1/1000 USS Reliant from Wrath of Khan. I am about 3/4 the way through a 1/1000 Excelsior. These things are massive next to my 1/700 warships, 1/72 tanks, and especially my normal 1/2500 spaceships but they are a blast. After this I have a trio of 1/700 of submarines in the queue. I have a Montana and an Enterprise waiting for me to get around to them as well.

For my ships I always preferred Tamiya or Dragon but Trumpeter has had some ones as well.

I can't build 1/700 scale. Its just to damn small. I like 1/72.

Since we're talking models, I need recommendations - I'm looking at two Trumpeter kits in 1/350, the Prinz Eugen and the Graf Spee. Leaning towards the Graf, but if anyone has had any experience with either kit, I'd appreciate some input. All the reviews I've read speak highly of both kits, so it's mostly a matter of opinion at this point.

Also looking at Dragon's 1/350 1943 Scharnhorst, but the few I can find cost aboooout a kidney, so that's unlikely.

I have built the Dragon's Graff Spee, and Tamiya Bismarck. If you can swing it buy both. I liked building Blucher as a kid, but it was like 1/720. I just want to build larger ones now. I like the 72, and or 96 scale. Its not for everyone. 350 is nice. I wish they would have made 1/250 more of a thing. They had a Yamato in that scale. It was big, but not fill the room large like what I am scratch building now.

Thanks for that. And yeah, you're definitely building things at a slightly larger scale than I'm planning to at the moment :Smile_Default: That's gonna be sweet though, post more pics as you go please.
Since I posted the question, I ended up grabbing the Graf Spee, as it looked like a slightly easier build than the Prinz Eugen. That of course led to buying more tools and such that I've never needed before (gap filling putties, masking tapes, extra thin cements, etc), which led to a hefty expense (but the hobby isn't cheap, and I knew that). It looks to be a lot of fun, assuming Scale Hobbyist ever ships the order.
