IJN Okitsu was launched as RN Lepanto for the Italian Navy in 1927. She was in the far east at the start of WW2 and was scuttled in Chinese waters. She was subsequently raised and refitted by the Japanese Navy and renamed "Okitsu".
This model was made for Dan Muir, who kindly provided most of the reference material to make the model, which is about 2 inches long to put it in perspective..
