   Two Monoperms would be the ideal motors and two channel R/C would fit nicely, hopefully it would perform well on the water. Having now completed and run the model it performs better than I could ever have hoped, performance and steering being exceptional!

   Although titled Harbour DML these launches carried out a multitude of duties, many spending much time in harbour, however they illed in on everything else, escorts for coastal patrols, air defence, picket boats; some even went on the Dieppe raid!

   Length OA: 72ft. Length PP: 70ft. Beam: 15ft. Displacement: 46 to 54 tons. Engine installations were as varied as armament, therefore speed ranged from 10 knots to 17 knots, displacement also varied as to duties, armament and fuel capacity.

Thank you for looking Rose
