Samek 1/700 IJN Battleship Ise 1917

I want to start my Samek 1/700 BB Ise 1917 kit and wondered if anyone has built this kit or knows of any reviews.

Nope, but I would be into watching you do a build. Those CE resin kits can be challenging, but winners too.

Modeling is an excuse to buy books

Me too. Please do a "Build" .

 I have the Samek USS Delaware in my wish list at Freetime. Never made a Samek kit so would realy like to see one Posted.

P.S.  FTH has been my Shop of choice for years.

Nino I'll try to add photos of the 1917 Ise kit as it progresses; first I want to start out with a few of the "simpler" 1/700 resin kits to get some experience since at 70-yrs old the eyes and hands aren't what they were in my youth. I also got most of my Samek WWI-era battleship kits such as the USS Delaware from Freetimes Hobbies.

Here are two kits built after resuming ship modeling after many years hiatus; kits are Combrig 1/700 Dreadnought Императрица Мария (Imperatritsa Mariya) and pre-dreadnought Andrei Pervozvanny (Андрей Первозванный — St Andrew the First-Called). I'll build a few more similar kits before tackling the Samek BB Ise 1917.
