finally after 2 months, i got the destroyer escort kits, it's a Pit-road re-release, contains 3 hulls, perfect combo to built PS-76, PF-5, and PF-11



the 3 DE's together with D-66 on left and PF-4 on right



i got so excited i started with PS-76 almost right away
have to re-do PF-4's tri-mast, i used a larger rod before, started the bridge too
the Pit-road DE kits have extra 5 inch guns, and i'm going to use them on the Bonifacio class frigates
