Not real, but not quite whiffy - Meng's SD Lexington OOB!
« on: March 01, 2018, 08:31:37 AM »
One thing Iíve noticed as I continue in this great hobby, is that the longer I build, the more varied the subject matter Iím attracted to becomes. When I started, it was fast Vietnam-era or newer jets only. Then there was some WWII, then Gundams came along, then any weird plane, then cars, submarines and most recently tanks.  However, one thing Iíve never been, and doubted I ever would be, interested in was surface ships.

This is nothing against surface ship kits; I know there are many excellent ones. However, I just donít like ships much, and I donít find them too interesting on a personal level. Iíd rather build a loser car or some obscure failure of a plane  than a ship. Well, that was until now.

Thanks to Meng, I have been sucked into the world of surface vessels. However, Iíve not gone easily into that dark night. Oh no. ďWhat do you mean?Ē you ask. Well, the first surface ship Iím ever going to review, and in fact (likely) build is the Meng Warship Builder Lexington (CV-2). What makes it right up my alley, though, is that itís an SD (Super Deformed) carrier, or ďegg boatĒ.

It was so off the wall that I had to pick it up. Check out this weirdo of a kit at the link below. I think itíll be a scream!
