This is my build of the Showcase Models Australia HMAS Collins kit. It is an out of the box build and it is a very well-engineered kit. I used the ceremonial markings for her launching that are provided on the decal sheet
to give the model a little pizzazz.  The model is mounted on a homemade wood display simulating keel blocks. This was a fun build and I recommend this kit to my fellow modelers.
