Gunny,

Good review and a great way to bring to the spot light the hard working lighter. The lighter is a great work horse ship. It was used for cargo, refuse, and even for coastal and river defense. This would be a great kit to add to the stash and it even has a decent price.

Thanks Frank, my pleasure...

Seems like I might just get you to try a 1/700 scale ship soon, eh?

Another very tempting offering from Battlefleet Model's which may have to find its way into my collection.

I've just finished my first harbour dio, and it includes this same kit together with the YO's, barge, and Hog Islander. I also used all the dock pieces, and BFM buildings - several kits overall.

The small ship builds are quick and easy, and putting them all together has been my most interesting modelling task to date - loved every minute of it.

All power to BFM for accurate clean castings, imagination, and VALUE FOR MONEY!

Cheers,

Peter F.

She is a real beauty!!
