A new boat this time but from an old topic I started two years ago so as you can imagine researching her has been an ongoing task.
HMS Adamant was a submarine tender built in 1911 with one sister ship called Alecto. At the time early submarines couldn't house their crews for more than a few days or carry out repairs to themselves easily so they had tenders to act as floating messes and repair work shops.
The model will be built to 1/4" to 1ft (1:48) scale using my last ever plans purchased from the National Maritime Museum before the price went silly. Unusually for us (Steve & I) it will be a single prop vessel and the only mystery still remaining is where the 4" gun is located as mentioned in all the Janes books. All my current pictures and plans do not show a gun mounting but Janes insist that they were armed!
Don't worry the train ferry will be finished in due course when I return from Cyprus so it can be completed to honour Sandy.
