About the Calypso
Named after a Greek mythological figure, the Calypso was a former British Royal Navy minesweeper. It was later converted into a research vessel for the Oceanographic researcher Jacques Yves-Cousteau.
Launched in 1942, the Calypso certainly had a busy career. This kit will offer the model kit enthusiast a very worthy challenge!
