  • I think I saw some on clearance at HobbyLink Japan..... Whistling

  • Interesting that you should mention it now, with all the stuff happening in Japan. 

  • Obviously, you are not familiar with Manny's reputation...

    he DOES in fact know...

  • My brother built a model of nuclear power plant back in the 60's. I think Revel made it. I'll be talki8ng to him tomorrow... see if he remembers more about it.

    this what you're talking about?

  • That's the one... Think it sold for about $10.00 back in the day.

       

  • Heljan (Danish model company carried by Walthers) makes a model in (supposedly) HO scale-1/87.I built it last year-not all that accurate and a very different design than the Fukushima plant. The Heljan design has the classic 'hour glass'cooling tower.It is a very easy build if you are serious about the question

  • How about this?

  • Hey , MANNY , what,s with you .Don,t you like submarines anymore ?? LOL.LOL.LOL. I do know of one and I can,t remember what scale it is but , it,s paper . The only one that REVELL did has never seen the light of day for over forty years . It,s easier to get the oil platform or the big GERMAN mining machine than the reactor .You could get the paper model and use it as a pattern to do one in plastic .     tankerbuilder

  • Well I was thinking of putting a reactor on a type IX U-boat and calling it a Kreigsmarine '46 "what-if?" paper project

    Kreigs-'46??

    On the bench: Heller 1/72 Curtiss Hawk H.75; Italeri 1/72 Su-22. And probably a cat when I'm not looking...

  • My LHS has a section behind glass with vintage models. It has a sign that reads, THESE MODELS ARE NOT FOR SALE, BUT IF YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT. PRICES AS MARKED.

    They do have the Revell mint in box and I believe it is 1/144. If memory serves me well, the price tag is $400.

    We have a new modeling genre!

    Soon, we'll have Manny starring in, "Das Boot Zwei: the hunt for the type CCXXIX"
