    That's nice, 'Penelope', light cruiser 'Arethusa' class . Lots of action on the Norwegian convoys and then Mediterranean. She was holed so many time that she was nicknamed HMS Pepperpot!
    Lovely model nevertheless.

    Nice one Neil,
    Welcome aboard๐Ÿ‘
    Attached pics taken in Malta show her battle damage from bomb splinters plugged with chunks of wood. Earned her the second nickname of HMS Porcupine!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
