Trumpeter 1/60 Mayflower


Recommended Posts

I received as a gift the Trumpeter 1/60 Mayflower. Until receiving this gift I have had no knowledge or experience with this manufacturer. Has anyone had experience with building their sailing ships, and if so, what did you think?  I have not opened it as I am finishing up my Man O War. Any thoughts or advice will be greatly appreciated.

There is not much on the WEB about that kit, but here is a picture that gives some ideas of the size of the kit: 




Here is the link to the Build Log: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/trumpeter-mayflower-1-60-t446561.html


The good stuff about this kit, is that the scale of 1/60 is very close to the standard 1/64 used for period ships. Mingling plastic parts and wood parts may result in a very nice model. I hope you will start a Build log when you open the box.
