They look good in their colour, a bit more green than the RAN Storm Grey.

The Portuguese frigate NRP Alvares Cabral (F 331) steams alongside USS La Salle (AGF 3) as part of a formation of U.S. Navy and other multi-national warships during Majestic Eagle 2004. July 12, 2004.

Hi Mike
Ye i thought about purchasing a aps hull ,and extending the hull by checking the dimension i found the portugese frigate was longer that HMAS ANZAC in 72 scale by 10 ins i think off by hand
During i visiting to KG 5TH Docks in Glasgow Vasco De Gama was dock with other warships from NATO which was taking part in one of the joint warrior exercises in Scotland
So that why i listed a request for help

Really, my copy of Jane's Fighting Ships has her at 115.9 metres in length.

That compares with the Greek Hydra's at 117,5 meters, Turkey's Barabaros class at 116.7 meters and our Anzac's at 118 meters.

Checked on the Portuguese Navy's own website and they say 115.9m
