On the basis that the kits are more likely to be seen by non-model builders than model builders, I asked each of the builders to take some "work in progress" shots which could then be shown alongside the models, allowing the construction methods and level of interior and exterior detail of the kits to be shown. Some illustrative examples are shown in the gallery below. More to follow in due course. Photographs are by the builders themselves.
