ITS Fiume Battle
by Charles Landrum
Battle Cruiser Fiume with Photo-Etched Parts is available online
Here are some pictures of my ITS FIUME.
This is the Tauro 1/400 model that I entered at the
2002 Nationals. It took a bronze in its category.
The kit builds up nicely, but the instructions are
vague on the main mast.
I built her in her colorful 1940 markings before
her loss at Matapan. The stripes were a recognition feature for the
Regia Aeronautica to prevent friendly fire sine the Regia Aeronautica
had a habit of attacking anything that floated. On the other hand it
made target ID easy for Stringbags on the hunt!
The starboard side is rigged for underway with the
paravane at the ready. The port side is rigged for inport.
For the Plane Talking crowd I have a RO-43 on the
the thumbnails below to view larger images:
