How could they make a 5 foot hull out of styrene that would hold up? I think that it would collapse of its own weight unless the hull is half an inch thick. I believe that's why the hulls of models that big are either wood or fiberglass. And if it was a multi-piece hull, the fit would have to be tremendously exact between the sections, or there's no point. I can't imagine it being a one or two-poece hull; the box would be over five feet long!

Happy modelling!
