HMS Vanity...

The HMS Vanity circa 1942. This is the old Arrowmodel kit of the WAIR conversion of Vanity. I drilled the portholes, scratchbuilt the mast, used the WEM V/W class photo etch detail set, cast the turrets, and used brass barrels. Rigging was Caenis line. I used Floquil and Testors paints to replicate the Western Approaches color scheme. All in all a fun build.

That's a lot of good work to put into an older kit like this, and a nice crisp paint job as well.
