In 2017 we were pleased to send this unique hand carved wooden model, of HMS Ocean, off to a client in the USA. Despite being in a sturdy packing case, what must have been excessively poor handling caused the model to come loose and a lot of damage to the upper works, hand rails and aerials ensued. The hull and super structure is largely untouched and the basis of a very fine model remains and could provide a great reward for someone prepared to put in the restoration work.
1/200 scale produces a very impressive model that is 40" (101.6 cm) long x 7.25" ( 18.4 cm) x 9.5" (24 cm) high.
A full deck cargo, comprising
2X WESTLAND SEA KING 1/200 3.28""
· 4X WESTLAND LYNX 1/200 2.34""
· 2X AGUSTA WESTLAND AW159 WILDCAT 1/200 2.65""
· 4X MERLIN 1/200 3.84""
· 4X BOEING CHINOOK 1/200 3.12""
· 2X WESTLAND APACHE 1/200 2.94""
Ocean still has a wooden case for transportation.
HMS Ocean was completed in 1998 and designed to carry 12 Sea King and 6 Lynx helicopters, now upgraded to later aircraft such as the Apache attack helicopter.
