Earlier this week while browsing thru ebay looking for the Dragon kit in 1/350 scale I happened across a kit from The Blue Water Navy which is basically resin with white metal and PE brass details. It was near the end of the auction and nobody had bid on it. Starting bid was $49 so I set up a snipe bid at $55 and waited. Later, when I checked my status I was surprised to discover I had won the auction at $49. Assuming this kit is complete and undamaged as advertised I think I got a really great deal as I have seen this kit priced well over $200. I never did find the Dragon kit for under $90. Several reviewers have claimed that the Dragon kit is the best plastic kit in 1/350 of any WWII warship but I can't find a comparison of the two kits but I did find a review of the BWN kit stating it is one of the best resin kits on the market. When it arrives I will post a review of my opinion of the kit. Meanwhile anyone with personal knowledge of either or both kits feel free to state your views.
