EVA, a Russian and Italian collaboration, release the first in a series of limited edition kits focused on Italian and Royal Navy warships of the Second World War; Navigatori Class destroyer Ugolino Vivaldi
The Ugolino Vivaldi, a Navigatori Class destroyer, was one of the many workhorses of Italian Navy during World War II. Of the 12 ships built in the late 1920's all but one were lost in battle during the Second World War. In 1940, Ugolino Vivaldi stake in the war would come when she sank British submarine HMS Oswald. This destroyer would go on to preform escort duty for a freighter convoy to Tripoli. She would meet her demise at the hands of a scuttling after receiving heavy damaged from German coastal bombardments while attempting to reach interment in Spain after the Italian Armistice.

The Navigatori Class destroyer Ugolino Vivaldi is a limited edition kit and is available only on Ebay at the moment. Current price for this multimedia kit is set at 58 Eur + shipping. This is a 1/350 scale version of this ship cast in resin and comes with photo etch detailing and waterslide decals.

This is the very first release by E.V.A. Other kits are scheduled to arrive in the near future.

This kit can purchased currently here - Ugolino Vivaldi on Ebay

Don't know if the quantity on eBay is "IT" but there is 5 left now -as ordered mine. Been looking for something like this since WEM slept beneath the waves.

That is interesting Chris...just checked and there is 10 available, 8 sold. Anyway, it looks to be a nice little kit! You'll have to let us know what you think of it when it comes in!

He must keep topping the number then.

Quite possible. The garage-kit nature of manufacturing reflects in the numbers. He might have had 5 to 10 on hand originally and once some sold, it makes room to replenish the supply until he hits a target number.

Just an update. Vivaldi is again available with a new improved tooling (hull cast in a single piece).
