This is the well-known Flower-class Corvette kit first released by Matchbox in 1979, and re-boxed here by Revell. This example was from the basic molds, not one of the enhanced or upgraded kits. The kit is very crude by today’s standards both in molding quality and accuracy of many of the details. This was built for a friend who wanted to use it for wargaming with the intention of an out of the box build, but I couldn’t resist improving several of the parts.
Of course, the Kaiju attack is inevitable when one has children!
