Revell HMCS Snowberry K166 Flower Class Corvette
This is a build of the Revell Flower Class Corvette. The kit was initially released by Matchbox in 1979 and has been re-released repeatedly since, often with upgrades or bonus parts. The kit was built for a friend who wanted to use it for wargaming, and paid me in beer for building it! Now how could I refuse that? He asked for an out of the box build, but several of the parts were quite crude, so much so that I couldn't let them go and felt obliged to make some improvements.
The finished model is slightly over 34 inches (868 cm) long in 1/72 scale. I didn't correct every detail in the interest of getting the build completed in a timely manner, but the majority of the smaller parts were modified in some way or replaced entirely. This was especially true for the guns, all of which were built up from Evergreen and parts from the spares box.
