About van impe yvan (yvan69)


Very nice and a subject that doesn't get enough attention. The gunned ships are sexy, but the Liberty ships kept the war going.

van, expert work. The streaking chippy scaly rust of the hull is spectacular.

Van, super work. The painting is just beautiful. I've often thought about buying this kit for myself and seeing one built so well has moved it up my 'to buy' list. My destroyers need something to escort after all.
