Questions:
1)   Are these listed on E-Bay?  I can't seem to find them
2)   Will they (tow) deliver to Windsor, or for collection only?
3)   Will they fit in my car?
4)   What size ESC required?  I guess Chinese 500 A at least.
5)   Will my Wife notice if I brought one home?

You could always claim its a new type of shed - though the neighbours may have something to say about it, the neighbourhood watch would be very interested in the phalanx and 105mm, although being able to lock onto a thieving little s*** might be tad difficult.  <*<

A working Plalanx system would be wonderful to help discourage the darned Herons, although Heathrow ATC might get miffed. 

I am assuming that this is a 1/1 scale original builders model, so all the fittings should be very detailed and accurate.  Rotating turrets, smoke generator, and realistic sound effects.  Yummy  O0

Having failed to slip a newly acquired 1.5 m WWI warship past the Lady Harbourmaster last week, a full 1/1 would definitely be pushing my luck.

You could even have your very own Front Gate Guardian (shades of Jeremy Clarkson)

Hi Bob.
 you could always have one towed away and moored on the canal then tell the boss you are going to "up sticks" to an "eco house boat"  {-)

If your house backs on to the Windsor Canal aka river thames
move your slipper launch up a bit to make room for it.

Knowing the state the 42's in the basin in Pompy dockyard are in, I think you will definitely needed a few tins of paint. Oh and there is a lot missing from them that we used to keep the carrier and 23's at sea
