Could this be a HAI model mastered and painted by yours truly?
Models are Ondina - CM in civilian livery and Hokoku Maru - probably Hai, although CM also made one of both her and her sister Aikoku Maru.
11/42 The Hokoku Maru and sister Aikoku Maru, Japanese liners converted into AMCs got into a gun battle with Ondina, a Royal Dutch Shell tanker (there is a model of her as an AMC as well) and HMIS Bengal, an Indian corvette, in the Indian Ocean. A shell from Ondina reportedly sank Hokoku.
As an aside, I've been looking for a model of Bengal, a Bathurst -class minesweeper/corvette, produced primarily for the Australians. A cross between the Flower corvettes and Ton class minesweepers. Don't think one has been produced.
This one should be straightforward except one of the models...connection, ships, and models?
