Hi,

Some photos of another project finished back in 2003: the Minerva Corvette F551 from the Marina Militare (Italian Navy), produced by Delphis Models at 1/700 scale. (resin model)

A few weeks ago I decided to make some improvements on the original work, namely the PE Rails, antennas (stainless steel piano wire), some very light wash and base plate with the sea.
After the "refit" this model looks now completely different and worth all the effort and time spent!

Thanks.
