If you want a 1/350 Hood in injected plastic, go to http://www.steelnavy.com/ And cast your vote! Steve Wiper of Classic Warships is giving a survey on who wants this kit. The survey is in there forum. Steve is a designer and adviser to Trumpeter models, plus owns his own resin model company.
Just vote YES guy's!

Cheers,
Garry

Done. Here's what I wrote

"I'm new here but I wanted to add a big YES! I promised to buy two of them, one to practice on and one to do a proper job.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, bring us out of the poorly made plastic or hugely expensive resind HMS HOOD limbo and come out with a REAL 1/350 Hood. Possibly even two, one pre war and one of when she went down."
