That is looking much better Don! I agree with you. Falkonet could really have made this in 1:24 scale, but at least in 1:30/1:32.

The new Dusek/Mamoli kits are nice and the 1:24 Leudo is no exception with nice plans and materials. The roundness of the hull makes the planking harder than one might think. I do not know if he made any major changes.
