John Haynes at work on his model of HMS Hermes
For this project, John highly recommends the book PC Patrol Craft of World War II: A History of the Ships and Their Crews, by Wm. J. Veigele ISBN: 0-9645867-1-1 This book and plan gives all the detail down to the last rivet .
She is depicted in her 1945 configuration. This model is displayed onboard the USS Missouri at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
John has also sent in photo of a completed model, the last Royal Yacht, Britannia.
If you study these photos, you can learn a lot about the construction of a highly detailed model. The real Starling was responsible for a Baker's dozen submarine kills during World War II - a very impressive record indeed!
