RM Renna - Corvette (flower class corvette)

So my eye was caught by some photos of an Italian Mercantile conversion of the flower class .

so I'm going to do an Italian Navy based build inspired by the photos .

A WW1  or 1920s era merchant press ganged into service in WW2 cro baby with inspiration from Italy s  own corvettes

Actually Dizz is actually from Gallifrey and he let me borrow his Tardis...

I think her name fits in well with the timescale of the build and is actually one that was planned for an uncompleted unit of the Gabbiano class corvettes.

Dizz being a Time Lord could explain a lot.

Just love the idea of this conversion. Is there a link to the actual build if possible.

Sorry I didn't take any progress pictures . But will happily answer any questions.  There is a lot of Dapol railway kits on there.

Hatch cover comes from the level crossing kit.
Superstructure is signal boxes

Funnel comes from kiosks kit
