Italeri 1/35 scale MAS 568 4a series

While the model kit presents some challenges, I was impressed with the finished model right out of the box.

Depending on your reference and the era to which it refers, you can find the Italian acronym MAS defined as Motoscafo Armato Silurante (torpedo-armed motorboat), Motorbarca Armata SVAN (armed motorboat SVAN, for Società Veneziana Automobili Navali, or Naval Automobiles Society of Venice), or Mezzi d’Assalto (assault vehicle). The Italian navy’s 500-class MAS was a 17-meter-long (56') fast torpedo boat with a top speed of 45 knots.
