Unicorn brand Halifax kit


Recommended Posts

Hello all


I was just lurking on eBay, and see a nice looking Halifax admiralty style kit being offered.  I says it is made by the Unicorn company, and the box has what looks like Japanese writing.  The seller is in Moscow Russia, and the kit ships from Russia.


Also offered is a HMS Druid kit, plus various blocks - 3-9 mm in single double and triple.


Has anyone ever heard of these guys?


Thank you for any info.

Ah.. yes.. we've heard of them.  For information, see here:  http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/181-banned-kit-manufacturers-on-msw/


They're not Japanese but Chinese pirated models and their models are not permitted in our build logs.  MSW does NOT condone piracy in any form.
