The ship in its original design is the Anker A16 Taksin. I got 2 of the Taksin's from a seller, but they were not packaged well and were pretty well banged up. So I had to completely strip them and rebuild the models. The second one is still undergoing rebuild in the drydock. The other ship as modified by the Italians is actually a Youngerman YSM-2 Etna built from a kit. However, the model looks almost identical to the Anker A-11
Vesuvio, except for the Gufo radar on the director and a few other very minor details. I had forgotten that Anker had issued the Vesuvio. Glad I was able to provide a little competition for Roger and Colin. Great job on figuring out the models, especially as the Thailand/Siam navy is not one commonly thought about.
