HMS Diamond was a Daring-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy. She was built by John Brown & Company in Clydebank, Scotland, and launched on 14 June 1950. This ship was John Brown & Company's first all-welded ship.
For any reader wishing to start building H.M.S. Diamond soon, a few additional notes on hull construction might be of use. Details of assembly procedure for both the hull and the superstructure appear on the plan, and points of interest in building the superstructure will be discussed.
