I’m interested in the kit, too. Looking forward to your opinion. Also would like to know how much shipping was. Did you get the laser cut railings, too?

Here is a couple of photos from the shoreline I took a few months ago. Last I heard, the dock was damaged so tourists can no longer get onto the memorial.

I'm interested too. Can't figure out how to order it though. Back in the early 90s I lived in Hawaii, and got to visit the memorial. Also, I was friends with the son of the guy who owned the company that built the memorial. It was fun going to their house because you could still see some of the concrete moulds used to make parts of the memorial lying around their yard. Plus the grandfather who owned the company during WWII also made concrete bomb shelter arches for workers doing recovery efforts after the attack, and there were several of those still in the yard.

I had no problems ordering from their site. The shipping took about 10 days. Very nicely packed too.

OK so to the model.6 pages of parts and 7 pages of instructions in english and polish.Illustrations are clear and precise to follow.Model fits onto A4 coloured diorama base.Got the laser parts also which cover main frames as well as railings and even flower wreaths to set inside.Laser parts also include precut ply base for model.
Few sample pictures,Colour issue is my dying scanner and not model fault.Really looking forward to this one
