Conte di Cavour


Paul Eisenberg’s 1:200 Italian battleship Conte di Cavour shows her in a late 1930s fit. Built 20 years earlier, the Conte di Cavour underwent a radical rebuild during the 1930s and emerged as depicted in Paul Eisenberg's model. As with his Nagato (click here for a closer look), Paul builds with whatever materials are handy. He uses neither etched brass nor resin castings. Every turret and gun is individually constructed from the materials at hand. This model is Paul's first major work of "reasonable quality". He was inspired to build the Cavour by P.C. Coker's book, Building Warship Models
