I agree with Karl.
Though I understand that 1/35 scale is the defacto standard for military modeling, they should have made it in 1/32 simply because there's a fiberglass hull and both companies would benefit!
I certainly would have bought the kit and the Microglass' hull because then it would be a "complete" kit. I've done the same with Microglass' lobster boat because it fits perfectly with my vintage Midwest Shrimp Dragger.
Rarely, do I build from a hull. I'm old school. I'm biased toward kits with fiberglass hulls.
In any case, happy to see this kit appear. In a world of RTR's this is greatly appreciated.
