This was my quarantine build! Made a few changes from the base kit:
-The PE antenna were replaced with wire for a less flat appearance, though sacrificing the taper.
-The 76mm gun mounting had its front slope extended all the way to the bottom of the mount. The barrel was replaced with a brass one from Master. A sliver of plastic added under the barrel for the casing ejector chute.
-The mast was modified on its port side to accomodate the scratchbuilt Reutech RSR 210N radar, which came with the refit to the ships that gave them the NSM missiles.
-The PE blast deflectors for the NSMs were installed despite not being shown in the instructions - understandably, they required a lot of thinning of the bulwarks that meet the corners of the NSM mounts so the latter can be moved with enough clearance to install the deflectors.
-The PE SRBOCs were re-angled to attempt replicating the multi-directional launcher installed on the ships.
-Liferings cut from wire.
-Safety 'rail' winding its way along the forecastle for sailors to clip on to made from wire.
-Paints were Lifecolour: DKM 50 Hellgrau Silbergrau for the vertical surfaces.
-And perhaps the best part, assembled the NH-90 helicopter's main rotor so that it can spin freely by ensuring only the rotor cap was glued onto the shaft - great engineering here by James from Dodo!

Nice.
Do you know if the Oslo class exist as a kit? Preferably Bergen or Trondheim, but I guess Oslo itself can be modified somehow?

I am not aware of any Oslo class kit, but there are kits of the Dealey class, e.g. Cromwell by Niko Models.

But the hull could be too different.

There are plans of the Oslo class here:
http://forsvaretsmuseer.no/fartoysbasen/Fartoeysbasen/Oslo-2

(the files below "Vedlegg").

I am not sure what could be a source for plans of the Dealey class to compare how different they are.

The hull and forward superstructure look close enough. Aft superstructure seems to be as commisioned, but sea sparrow and the rear 40mm isn't there.
Oh well, it was a long shot
