Good model of an elegant ship!

Is the kit nice to built?


Hi,

Some areas of the hull has small holes, but nothing really complex to solve.
The PE as well as the Decal sheet set have been upgraded and new resin parts are now available in order to provide options for all versions of the this ship, depending on the time frame.

There are now 3 options for the main 76mm Oto Melara gun, namely:
• 76/62 mm Compact “standard” gun (used among many other ships by the Brandenburg Type 215 class Frigates or the Sachsen Type 219 class Frigates)
• 76/62 mm SR (the same version used by the Italian Orizzonte Class Destroyer, the French FREMM Frigates or the French Forbin Class Detroyers)
• 76/62 mm Davide/Strales (the same version used by the Italian FREMM Class Frigates)


For the “secondary” guns, 2× Oto Melara/Oerlikon KBA 25/80 mm remote weapon systems are now included (the same gun used on the Italian FREMM Class Frigates) as well as the “old” 20mm Oerlikon gun.
PE parts 7 and 8 are the most tricky to apply, but yet nothing really complex.


For further details check the following images with the instructions sheets for this model:

As additional modifications and/or improvements over the original model, I used stainless steel piano wire (Gauge 0,12 mm) from my grand piano for the antennas and the OTO Melara 76mm/62 Cal SR Gun from BigBlueBoy (ref. 75025) that includes a brass gun barrel.



Hope it helps!


Thanks.
