|Giuseppe Garibaldi by Bob O'Connor|
This is the resin kit of the Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Italian Navyís Harrier Carrier. Itís a great b model and very pleasant to build. It was built from the box, and I added some GMM photoetched railings and replaced the radars and small fittings. Itís a real conversation piece at contests and shows because it is a relatively obscure ship to the American public.
The aircraft are particularly well cast, and were very nice additions. I wish all kits came with this quality of accessory. Other resin parts came slightly bent, but I was able to fix them with boiling water. My G.G. is shown with Sea Kings, Augusta Bell 212ís and Harriers.
