About the model

H.M.S. Bulldog (Survey Vessel).

Prototype history (click)
HMS Bulldog and her sister ships HMS.Beagle, HMS.FOX and HMS. FAWN are the four vessels of this class, built by Brooke Marine Ltd in 1968 for the Hydrographers of the Navy for coastal survey work anywhere in the world.
Powered by 4 x Lister Blackstone ER58M 8cylinder 4 stroke diesel engines coupled to twin shafts they had a top speed of 15knots. Passive tank stabilisers were fitted to aid in their work.
This is s very different Naval Subject, with its derricks, winches & survey boats it gives the model a very different appearance from other RN. ships, her white hull and buff funnel make for a very attractive model on the water.
The above package allows for a really detailed model to be made, at 1:48 scale many commercial fittings are now available, fitted with RC. and twin 545 motors her performance on the water is excellent, making her ideal for regatta work, this is not a difficult model to make and well worth the effort.Our prototype model was constructed by the late Frank Cheetham and is a fine example of what a skilled modeller can do with one of our GRP Hulls, although Frank has now very sadly passed away our prototype will always stand as a testament to his skill, we will also always remember a dear and true friend.
