    Got her yesterday!

    I will finish my Russian Petr Velikiy, CGN-099 in 1/350 scale this weekend, and then start on this immediately next week.

    Am excited about getting this latest and greatest PLAN Type 052D DDG into my 1/350 scale PLAN CV-16, Liaoning, Carrier battle group!

    As far as I can tell, I will be (again) the first US naval model builder to have one of these as they are not in any US stoers yet, and have to be ordered from China. Which I did.

    I am on my iPhone so can't really see clearly but those front lines look like the sharpe bow section of a Type 052D DDG

    So it could be that they stopped production in that hallway built those cargo/tanker ships and now switched back to warship construction

    Looks like we are back in business plenty of action to look forward too

    That is one very sweet picture of the new Type 052D, 172 Kunming.

    In the mean time, constrruction is proceeding rapidly in Idaho as well.
