1/72 Scale models.
Good size and great sea boats, even some of the long thin warships.

looking at the other views of here being launched, i get the feeling that the HSE have had a say in that there is very few places to fall overboard ;D ;D

Paul,
The first one to produce a Type 45 could sell a good few.

I appreciate the art of model making is in making or building most of the superstructure and mast but some of us aint too good at it  :( so, how about some parts such as superstructure and masts ready moulded?

Just a thought (PS that Type 45 looks good!)

Sloping sides on the superstructure can be difficult to get right, certainly not as easy as a rectangular box-like structure.

As well as a Type 45, I would like to see an Astute class sub as well as a Swiftshire class.

Thats a nice effort, too bad the picture is low res. It wont be possible to build an accurate 45 till HMS Daring hits the water and some pictures of the detail become available :'(. I'll only be after an accurate scale model of this ship though.

Its the effect of the naval cuts. They can only afford to build the front third of each hull. Saves a lot of money.... ;)

I'm told they're going to mount a ginormous outboard motor on the back...
