This is the White Ensign Models 1:700 scale HMS Starling, built more or less straight from the box, and a real gem of a kit. It is a very impressive and busy little kit, especially the quarter deck with depth charge racks, launchers, stowage racks and ready use ammo lockers. The Steel Navy review of this model sums it up very well. I have painted it using WEM'sColourcoat and Humbrol paints with stretched sprue rigging. The only extras I have added are scrambler nets, a RDF loop in front of the bridge and home made decals.
