It’s that fun time again, time to start a new project! Now which to do..? My usual area of interest is World War II-era subjects, and there are a number of really good ones sitting in the stash at the moment awaiting my attention... but they will have to wait a little longer. You see, I also have a quirky fondness for Pyro’s old sailing ship kits. Yeah, they are primitive, full of exaggerated detail and obvious inaccuracies, but I still can’t help liking them. They really are simple, straightforward builds, and I have always appreciated the innovative subjects Pyro embraced; what plastic model manufacturer today would even consider taking on a Fijian outrigger, a Roman merchantman, an Arab Dhow, or a Burmese paddy boat? Pyro Plastics is long gone, and these vintage kits are far from perfect, but somehow I seem to keep coming back to them.
This time, it is their Chinese War Junk from 1965.
Should be fun!
