As my neighbour Franco I also served in the Italian Navy just for about two years, not so long as you.

I'm very happy to see another ship builder and so "welcome on board" from Italy, brother.

Hope to see soon your progress on HMS Fife, I'll follow your work with real pleasure.

A friendly scratch to the sweet cocker,

Fair Winds,

Laerte

P.S.: Please forgive my english...

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for posting a photo of your beautiful model and even more beautiful dog. 1/72 Destroyer! I hope you are going to do a 'work in progress' on that.

Welcome to BM.
