    This is going to be the thread for my 1/350 scale Type 055 model I have found.

    I will start off introducing her, and then show her as she is outfitted and made into what we are seeing come together in China.,

    I found a 1/350 scale Type 055 with one of the Shapeways 3D vendors I have purchased and I am going to detail it out according to what we have already seen.

    The first couple of pictures are the model this 3D print are based upon, I will then take that and detail it out with the proper CIWS and aft missile launcher, as well as the proper ESW and other launchers (Decoys and what not) as well as the proper antennae on the main mast and elsewhere.

    I should get it right around Christmas (very fitting) and will then add it to my Laioning Group which consists already of two Type 054A, two Type 02Ds and one Type 093 SSN, all in 1/350 scale...of course with the Liaoning as well.

    I can then compare that to a US CBS with two Burke IIAs, a Ticonderoga, two of the uparmed Freedom class LCS for ASW FFGs, and a Virginia class SSN, that being matched together with the USS Ronald Reagan.

    It's going to be nice.
