HMS SULTAN is a semi-scale model based upon the escort carriers built in America during World War Il, These carriers were initially designed as emergency measures to provide anti-submarine aircraft cover for the Atlantic convoys, thus bridging the mid-ocean gap where land based aircraft could not reach. In fact they were widely used as first line units in most war theatres to compensate for the shortage of the larger fleet type carriers to speed construction these carriers were built on merchantman hulls, indeed many were converted back for civilian use after the war. Their simple austere lines make this class of carriers ideal for a simple working model. Whilst being immediately recognisable as an aircraft carrier, they avoid the extensive detail and consequently long building time associated with the much larger fleet carriers.
