Albatros Alk85A HMS Kent D12 Royal Navy County Class Guided Missile Destroyer (DLG) 1/1250
Albatros ALK85a a 1/1250th diecast scale model of the Royal Navy County Class Guided Missile Destroyer.
Completed in 1963, HMS Kent D12 was a batch 1 County class destroyer of the Royal Navy and retained her two twin 4.5" guns throughout her active career.
Designed around the Seaslug missile system, these large ships were almost as big as light cruisers. When the beam-riding Seaslug became obsolescent, some were re-armed with exocets but Kent soldiered on with minimum modernisations becoming a harbour ship in 1980 and remaining at Portsmouth long after her sisters were either scrapped or sold.
