This is the White Ensign Models 1:700 scale HMS Bluebell, Flower Class corvette kit. Built more or less straight from the box it is a real gem of a kit. I drilled out extra scuttles in both sides of the galley, aft ends of the aft deck house and the engine room skylight hatches. Depth charge loading davits taken from the WEM HMS Rodney / Nelson PE set were added by the launchers either side of the aft deck house. Splinter mats from thin plastic card were added around the bridge wings. I wanted to show the model in heavy weather so only the front part of the lower hull was used so she looks like she is punching her way out of a wave. The model is painted with WEM Colourcoats and Humbrol paints.
