Any help required just give me (ex Engineer on her) or Dodes (ex Mate on her).
I have also refurbished a model of her for a friend and might have some of the original ships drawings of her.
The Fleetscale kit comes with 5 blade props but these are wrong as she was fitted with 4 blade Variable Pitch Props.

Yes I remember her as a RFA towing section vessel in grey and black and later when she was taken over by the RMAS and painted buff and black. I believe when she was on the Cod Wars escorting the trawlers she was RFA towing section then. Her first master for several years was a Captain Dunkley, he was the person responsible for the wierd wheelhouse, as he refused to have engineers on the same deck as him and the engineers refused to move down to the same deck as the crew, so the designated wheelhouse space became accommodation and a new wheelhouse was quickly designed and fittted above that deck.

Looks like this route worked, I have other pics in B/W but these two are colour which I took myself, the stern view has a Hiab crane fitted, but I must caution you that this was probaly fitted for a trial, a Hiab was later permanently fitted right aft on what was the starboard boatdeck inboard of the petrol tank stowage rack.
