Another handsome ship !

I've tried to build the hull using styrene frames, but the central one was to thin (0,75 mm) and the hull was warped !
I returned to my usual method : solid wood

A very nice Cruiser, the Italian ships were designed before such ships were overgrown with small and medium AA. The possess the clean lines of say, HMS Hood.

A fun scale to work in. I many years ago I built a USN DE (Whitehurst) in thins scale, with only a ruler, a knife and a pair of pliers, from styrene sheet. My 1:192 Alaska came out very nice, waterline like yours, of styrene sheet, by having a base sheet screwed to the build base.

Keep up the nice work! Tom
