I have chosen to depict HSL 130 as I have photographs of her at various times from delivery in 1940 to what must have been her final appearance. Also I thought I would present her in pure line form without the added clutter of Anti-shrapnel matting or twin Vickers wing guns. A study of the photographs however should enable a competent modeller to add these details if he so desires. The detail on the Airfix model of this craft should be of great help.

Thank you for looking Rose
