I think this was the last kit model I built, now it's only scratch models. A beautiful ship belonging to the Italian navy. Cost about £500 (I do mean the kit) enjoyed the build but did not like working with the many metal parts. Paul
Is it the Mantua / Panart 1:84 kit?
It is a very long adventure to build it: bravo for this result!
I had the chance to climb on it and be able to visit it quietly when he came to France a few years ago. I had all the time and very few visitors going there very early in the morning.
The crew was also very available and welcoming. The Italian officer cadets were all aware of sailing on a superb ship and one of the most beautiful 3 masts sailing still existing...
