About the model

A superbly detailed model which lends itself to so much extra detailing you may never want to finish it.

Due to the nature of the subject there is lots of scope for weathering. These ships served long and under harsh conditions, and when completed the model looks so real you can almost smell the salt air! A fantastic nostalgic subject that will be the pride of place in any fleet.
