As some of you may know my father was a Chief Petty Officer of the Royal Navy for 24 and a half years, and ever since he left a few years back he has made it his mission to make a scale model of the ships he served in those being:

HMS Invincible
HMS Illustrious
HMS Coventry
HMS Sheffield
HMS Manchester
HMS Hydra

He has made a model of the Illustrious and the Manchester. With Illustrious and Invincible being the same class of she he has only built 1. He has built the Manchester. He has found no model of the Hydra because it was a survey vessel. He can never find a Type 22 Batch 2 Frigate AKA Sheffield. This has not stopped him however. He has got hold of blueprints for HMS Brave which is the same class as Sheffield, the only difference being the engines used. His mission now if to build a model out of wood and plastic if needed of the HMS Sheffield. I think this is an awesome idea and he has all the plans needed for all the parts. I want to document this build on this website so hopefully. there will be images and info as the project goes on till the end
