John's Model Shipyard RN605 Loch-class, a kit to make a Royal Navy Frigate of 1944-45 1/1200
Loch-class Frigate is a kit to make a 1/1200 scale, 3D-resin printed, waterline model of an anti-submarine frigate of late WW2. The kit is designed and made by John's Model Shipyard, RN605. Glue, plastic or metal rod for topmasts and paint are needed to make this kit.
The completed model in the photograph is of Loch Eck which was one of the most successful warships of this type taking part in the sinking of three U-boats during the last few months of the war in Europe. The key to the success of these ships was the Squid motars fitted in B-position forward of the bridge coupled with the latest form of Asdic which indicated directly the depth of the submarine under attack. By late 1943, green paint had become more available and most of this class entered service in green Western Approaches camouflage.
