(An Chu listed this kit as a product from Regia Marina and photo labels were prepared as such but this is an error. Subsequent to posting it was brought to the editors attention that this Gorizia kit is in reality produced by Delphis Models as kit DM-23.)
The RN Gorizia was one of the Zara class of Italian heavy cruisers. She was the only survivor of the the class, as the other three were sunk at the Battle of Cape Matapan. After being heavily damaged in an air attack, she was seized by the German Army and was finally sunk in a combined Italian-British special forces attack at La Spezia on June 26, 1944. An Chu built the Delphis Models 1:700 scale kit of the RN Gorizia.
