Used the modified hull of the Revell Calypso kit. Pilot house, vents, davits, sweep winches, just about everything else scratch built. Used 3"/50 from White Ensign, 20 mm's from Revell LSM; oval life rafts. 20 mm ready service lockers from HR Products. The old Lindberg Minesweeper provided the sweeping floats and some motors for the sweeping winch.

Sorry about the poor quality cell phone pics. Will try to take better photos another day and also post some of my USS Pirate (AM-275) built from the Lindberg Minesweeper kit.

I missed this on its initial posting.

Considering what this kit looks like out of the box compared to the finished product.

Absolutely stunning.

Stunning is an understatement. Exquisite build, particularly given the starting point.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Just took a few years to get decent photos rather than my ones from a cell phone. Another of those "i'll never do that again" builds.
