Well, everyone's gotta start somewhere. You don't expect to be able to do
all the cool scratchbuilds without years of experience.

Ape the examples in these Hobby Japan mooks and sooner or later you'll
develop your own sense of design style.

Actually, at 1/550 scale there isn't a lot of details to be had, but the
