Recently, I bought a model ship from Amazon of the Going Merry ship from One Piece.

Can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Going-Merry-Model/dp/B00435WX7G/ref=sr_1_2?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1399488456&sr=1-2&keywords=bandai+hobby+going+merry

After about 8 hours of work, here are a few pictures of it finally completed! The only tools I used were a nail filer to get some of the extra plastic off and tweezers for holding small things.

As a side note, I do recommend this to anyone who wants to have a bit of fun building something they enjoy. I did make a few mistakes here and there but this was also my first model I have ever built. Overall, I am really happy with the way it turned out! I will definitely be buying some more ships in the future! If I were to do anything differently, I would definitely paint some of the pieces to make them stand out a bit more. This is especially so with the flags because the stickers were near impossible to put on and also make look good. There ARE characters that come with the ship but they require painting. I do not have any paint so currently they are sitting off to the side. In the future I will be getting some to paint the crew and set them in the ship.

I have been debating with myself about buying this model, good to know it's worth it.

Hi Everyone,

Just wondering how you are liking this model. One of the shops I buy from has a deal of this Going Merry model with a Ban Dai Master Series Monkey D Luffy Kit as well, both for $69.99 plus free shipping....

Think this is a good deal?
