Research.
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Thursday, May 2, 2024 10:37 AM

I discovered something.

             Well, I actually knew it, but My son took it to heart during a conversation. Iwas telling him about the odd construction steps for a model I was working on. The Model? Hasegawa's "3rd Corps Soya Antarctic research vessel!" It seems the vessel in Questions has an interesting past.

            I looked at the info he sent and I found more. She (The SOYA ) has an interesting history and that, makes the completion of this kit a must. The kit even included the P.E. and-Two white metal Dogs and a Figurine that you assemble. It seems that's a salute to the only surviving dogs when some had to be left behind on a cruise.

           So, here I am late in life, researching the models I build!  I never really did much of that up until now, unless it was some Motoryacht or something like that. Some fascinating histories out there! Do your research!

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

I research every kit whilst building, especially racing and rally cars, interiors, decalling. It makes all the difference to me.

Remember , common sense is not common.
