Looks nice.

Clearly our borders are so well protected we obviously only need one of course........

How long before the first build appears on a pond/lake around the country or has one already been/being done?

"... it replaces HMC Sentinel, following decommissioning in 2013."

So did HMRC organise all that bad weather to stop seaborne smuggling in the gap between the two boats? >>:-(

Looks really nice at night - the ships name is illuminated from behind with blue light.

Any chance of a Mod changing the Title to HMC Protector ?


HMS Protector was a Hydrographic Survey / Ice Patrol vessel.


She is being built (model that is) by Raflaunches.
