Hi Wullie - I have purchased one of these kits from White Ensign Models at a total cost inclusive of VAT was about 159.00.  The moldings are excellent.  It should convert to RC operations with slight modifications.  Trumpeter have done an upgrade set for the small calibre guns. A further brass etched set is being produced by White Ensign Models with a release date some time in the spring.  This is a limited production run model and some model retailers have sold out.  Lots of confusion about the final colour scheme of this ship at the time of her loss in Pearl Harbor.  I will be going for the standard Navy grey scheme prior to her loss.    Send me a p/m if you need any more information.  SHG Models will be producing a set of running gear for this model, that is motors, props and shafts etc.  Makes an ideal companion to the 1/200th scale Japanese Battle Ship Yamato.
