The ship with the port holes is the Italian Vesuvio, probably the Youngerman model although Anker also made a model. The other ship would be the "as designed" ship which was being built in Italy for Siam but work stopped when Japan invaded Siam in December 1941. The two sister ships were to be named Taksin (which became Etna) and Naresuan. Perhaps the model is by Anker although the style looks more like Star.
Identify the models, their maker, and the models relationship to each other. A couple of models not often seen.
