Revell of Germany 1/700 Colombo Express
Less than a year ago, REVELL GERMANY released their 1/700 Colombo Express in a fair 1/700 scale. We’ve had the chance to build this kit upon commission by someone who works on exports often times with the Happag Lloyd vessel. The kit comes molded in white with markings for all 6 ships in the Colombo Express fleet. Personally I don’t like that much white kits because I can’t see panel lines very well due to the lack of contrast.
Other than the kit didn’t have any major issues. The 2 halves of the hulls fitted very nicely with almost 0 need for putty or gap filler. For those interested on this subjects, I highly recommend this kit.
Paints are called in Revell colors.
