They are, although the big thing (no pun intended) is now 1/350 scale ships. Really big and expensive kit projects, lots of aftermarket parts like wooden decks, lighting kits, turned brass barrels for guns etc. Great if building for museums, a bit much for home collecting or gaming.
Okay! You're building smaller versions, I haven't understand that the first time. I though you were making real turret for war and all.^^' Surprisingly (or not) I have used a lot of smaller replicate as reference to make this one. It is always surprising to see the amount of detail those smaller versions have.
