Here is my finished model of the Regia Marina 'Roma' September 1943. The kit is the Trumpeter 1/350 scale model with after-market products, such as Flyhawk
photo-etch and
Northstar figures. I depicted the model in September 1943, just days before this beautiful vessel was sunk, hence I had to make a few alterations
in  the boating equipment and paint work. I also added additional 20mm twin machine guns, once most of the boats were omitted.
I cannot but mention Messrs. Antonio Bonomi, Giampiero Galeotti and David Gat for their invaluable assistance and extensive research to make this build as
accurate and faithful to the real thing
