This is the L'Arsenal 1/400 scale kit of a MSC 60 class coastal minesweeper. These were USN vessels and many were transferred to France and other countries after WW2. I built this model as the Mimosa (and I toasted the completion with one too!) and it is basically out of the box with some minor scratch-built items: canopy and frame, searchlights and some of the mast details. The crew figures are also from L'Arsenal. This is an excellent model and you can use it as the basis to build just about any ship in this class for any navy that had them.
