Deans Marine Started in 1981 when the proprietor Ron Dean had the idea that parts for model ships could be produced on a part time basis to part finance his lifelong hobby of radio controlled model ship building. (Quote from the P.E.P. award brochure 1983)Deans Marine a Uk based company producing a large range of scale model war ships and merchant vesuals constantly improving their quality, and the older kits gradually being upgraded. Hulls are fibre glass with some surface detail, and the kits contain white metal and resin fittings with good instructions and plans.

HISTORY:
In the world of L C Ms the major players are the LCM-3, LCM-6, and LCM-8. The LCM-3 and LCM-6 are similar except the -3 is 50 feet long and the -6 is 56 feet long.
The main use for the boat was hauling all sorts of cargo. The next step up would be either and LCU or LSU (Landing Craft Utility/Landing Ship Utility).
By the time that the VN War cranked up, the LCM-3s were pretty worn out and were the basis of pusher boats around harbours. The LCM-6 was the main workhorse.

Deans Marine H.M.S. Dreadnought
Deans Marine H.M.S. Dreadnought
Ref: 1986
H.M.S. Dreadnought was the first all big gun battleship to be built. She was laid down at Portsmouth Dockyard in 1906 and was commissioned into the Royal Navy one year later, a building record that has never been equaled.
In addition to her uniform main armament of ten 12 inch guns, another major innovation in her design was the use of steam turbines for propulsion, giving her a five knot speed advantage over contemporary battleships. Her uniform main armament meant she was the first ship which could actually take advantage of the great effective range of large naval guns. By firing her guns in groups, aimed from a central control, it was possible to correct the guns' aim by spotting the fall of the shells and correcting the aim accordingly.
Dreadnought had a quiet war, her only notable achievement being the sinking of U 29 by ramming in 1915, the only occasion when a submarine fell victim to a battleship. She was scrapped in 1923

Details of the kit :
The model illustrated shows the ship in her early years, with the original bridge layout
The kit is based on the ship as in 1917
The hull is a one piece fiberglass moulding up to the deck line and including the raised focastle to ease construction. All plating and surface detail is moulded into the hull. The deck is 4mm marine plywood with the main deck and foredeck C.N.C.
CUT. The deck planking is printed on .6mm marine plywood ready to lay, plus instrctions for laying individual planks for the modeller wishing to add his own touch.
The main turrets are also fiberglass mouldings. The 12 inch gun barrels are Acrylic castings. Ships boats, funnells, D.C. towers etc are all vacformings, with optional extras available for precast ships boats as acrylic cast items.
Almost all other fittings requiring detail and strength, such as the 12 pounder guns, hatches etc, are cast in light alloy.

Deans Marine H.M.S Nubian
Deans Marine H.M.S Nubian
Ref: 1978
The frigates of the Tribal class were constructed to perform three functions, Air Direction, Anti-Aircraft and Anti-Submarine duties.
For this reason they were classed as general purpose frigates. When launched they were quite an advanced vessel as they included many "firsts" in their design.
The TRIBALS were the first ships to be fitted to carry a helicopter, having a hangar between the aft 4.5" gun and the mortar mk10.
They were the first ships to be fitted with the seacat missile system and, most novel at the time, the engines comprised a steam turbine propulsion system (COSAG) and a gas turbine which could be used for additional boost and to get away from a cold start.
The single shaft is powered from the combined steam and gas turbines, the former developing 12,500 shp, and the latter developing 7,500 shp. This indicated a top speed of 28 knots. All engine control rooms were air conditioned as was the rest of the ship..
The weapon fit of the class was 2 x 4.5" guns 2 x 4 seacat launch pads (or 2 x 4mm bofors) 1 x 3 barrel mortar mk 10. Some ships were later fitted with 2 x 20mm oerlikons as "junk bashers". 2 x 8 barrelled 3" decoy rocket launchers are also fitted port and starboard.

Details of the kit :
This was the first kit in the range to have MOD 11.This was the decision by DEANS MARINE to scrap all of the kits in the range that are left behind in the development process.
The model is then remade as a totally new kit based on a new hull and fittings that bring it up to the standards of the later kits in the range that have had the advantage of the latest construction methods.
As in all of our products lots of brass etchings are included for stanchions, ladders The enormous lattice mast and the bedstead radar that was such a notable feature of these ships.
The brass etching makes this a simple construction job. The Mod 11 programme will be carried out on all kits in the range throughout the life of the model.
Although this is a large model for a frigate she sails and steers well, being capable of almost "on the spot" turns.

LSM 161 was the last one to see commissioned service in the US Navy and was stricken from the records on 1 June 1965. Following WWII 129 were transferred to the navies of twenty five different countries. Some remain on active duty in Greece, Korea and Taiwan and maybe Communist China.
Some remain in use by private industry in the USA including two on the west coast - the salvage ship SALVAGE CHIEF (formerly LSM380) and the first factory ship WESTERN SEA (formally USS PEE DEE RIVER - LSMR 517). Eighty nine LSMs and eighteen LSMRs were converted to barges some of which are still in use. Note that in October 1955 seven LSMs that were on active duty and all the 401 and 501 class LSMRs were assigned names.
The LSMRs were named after minor US rivers.

Deans Marine H.M.S Sentinel
Deans Marine H.M.S Sentinel
Ref: 1979
The Sentinel class of cruiser came from Vickers yard in 1905, had a ram bow, three funnels, and a turtle back fo/castle.
The four, triple expansion engines developed 17,500 h .p. giving a speed of 25 knots. The ships of this class were small fast cruisers referred to as scouts.
They arose from the need for a fast ship to perform a scouting role in the North Sea and keep an eye on the increasing activity by the German navy in that area. Coupled with this role was the requirement for a flotilla leader to the small seagoing destroyers. These ships had to have the ability to work with their brood, but to still provide for the captain and his staff. Whilst lightly armed, compared with a third class cruiser they had a high speed which enabled them to "scout" in the knowledge that they could outrun any serious opposition. A total of 15 scouts were completed between 1905 and 1913 all with differences in construction.

Details of the kit:
The plated fibreglass hull is the base for this model, along with the superstructure from computer printed 1mm plastic for the main assembly and a sheet of .5mm printed plastic adding the final sharpness to this elegant model.
To add all the detail over 450 fittings cast in light alloy or plastic are included in the kit. Vacformed plastic mouldings take care of all the larger and more complex parts such as the many ships boats, funnels, vents and funnel bases.
The many stanchions on this model are cast in light alloy to give the correct pattern of spacing, with 2 gauges of brass wire for the stanchion wires. Brass etched ladders add the finest detail and delicate touch to this model, one of the classics amongst warships. Although a large model by small ship standards the handling and sea-keeping qualities are outstanding.
A comprehensive instruction book is included in the kit keyed to a FULL SIZE PLAN and large format exploded view. As in all the kits in the range, a full set of running gear is included in the kit. To add to the classic look of the ships of this era 2 colour schemes are included in the instructions.
The black hulled victorian livery gives a great presence and for an alternative scheme the colour of China station are included along with the standard Atlantic fleet grey.

Tips are also in the instructions for the use of the modern ACRYLIC car spray paints that are giving such outstanding results.

Deans Marine /H.M.S Solebay
Deans Marine /H.M.S Solebay
Ref: 1981
This model is of a class of warship that many shiplovers think is the most handsome and elegant of all ships to serve in the Royal Navy. The speed, lines, and offensive power of the armed destroyers has always captured
the imagination of all warship enthusiasts, and the Battle class combines all of the best with a powerful gun armament.
The completion of these war designed ships ran on well into 1947 being built alongside the famous Emergency class ships. The ships are referred to as the 1942 class, and most handsome they were in appearance. They embraced all the features that had been learnt during the war years, but so complicated was the weapons fit that only one of the class was completed by 1944. A further six ships joined the fleet in 1945.
The last of the fleet was completed in 1948. A brief history of H.M.S. Solebay follows as this ship is a representative of the class. She was built by Hawthorn Leslie, Hebburn on Tyne and launched on 22/2/1944 and was completed 11/10/1945.
She was the leader of the 5th destroyer flotilla from completion until 1953, so she would have carried the broad black band around her funnell She was at the Coronation review at Spithead on 15/6/53. After this she was paid off into reserve at Chatham. In 1957 she joined the 1st Destroyer squadron on Med/Home service. In 1959 she was deployed to the Far East returning in 1960 for a further Home/Med service.
In 1962 returned to Porsmouth to become harbour training ship. She was broken up in Troon in 1967.
Details of the kit:
The model of H.M.S SOLEBAY is constructed on a fully plated glassfibre hull with ports, asdic and intakes moulded in, all to the official admiralty drawings.
The decks and superstructure are in 1 & .5mm computer generated printed plastic. Ships boats (with options) the funnel and the staag mounting shields are supplied as vacformings.
For the first time the main armament and director are resin mouldings resulting in extremely sharp and accurate fittings. Cast metal, etched brass mast ,stanchions, and resin fittings add the truly professional touch to this classic destroyer model. Propellor tubes, fitted with oiling points and stainless steel shafts are included together with a comprehensive instruction book and a FULL SIZE plan. Full details are supplied for the fitting of motors, nicads and radio equipment.Scale 1/96 Length 1.21m Beam 152mm Sailing weight 4.1

Dean Marine H.M.S Tanatside
Dean Marine H.M.S Tanatside
Ref: 1982
In 1938 the Navy saw the need for a small, fast destroyer type of ship, to carry out escort and screening duties for convoys with a reasonable Anti Aircraft and Anti Submarine capability together with good sea keeping.
Tanatside was one of the large number of the Hunt class built in the three main types with 2 of the class in a forth group. Tanatside was launched at the Yarrow ship yard on the 30th April 1942.
For the full story of the Tanatside and her career we recommend the book by Captain Roger Hill "Destroyer Captain".
Details of the kit
A plated fibreglass hull forms the base for this model of these "Pert" little ships. Decks and superstructure are in 1mm printed plastic sheet with .5mm sheet for the 2 main structures.
To complete this detailed little ship over 150 cast metal and cast plastic items along with vacforming for all gun shield, gun cabs, ship boats are provided.
Etched brass for the stanchions give the finishing touch to the dainty appearance of this ship.
As in all the kits it is complete with all running hardware ie; proptubes, propshafts in stainless steel, rudder, tiller arm etc. "On the water" performance and steering are outstanding as proved by Mr. M. Demain who held the Kit class National place for 3 years with one of these ships.....

Deans Marine H.M.S Vanquisher
Deans Marine H.M.S Vanquisher
Ref: 1983
This class of destroyer is most probably the best known and the most successful to serve in the Royal Navy.
They were the most numerous and longest serving class of ships ever built. The Vanquisher was completed at J. Brown & Co on the Clydebank in 1917 on a displ, of 1,090 tons with engines of 27,000 s.h.p. to give a maximum speed of 34 knots.
Vanquisher served in the Royal Navy throughout the second world war when she was converted to a long range escort. Almost totally worn out after her long and strenuous service she was sold for scrapping in March 1947.
Thought by many to be the best looking of all the British destroyers constructed, these ships were the most coveted command of many a naval officer.
The classic lines of these ships can be seen in a larger size in all following British ships in the A to I class, of which the Daring is an example.

Details of the kit:
This model captures the attractive and dainty looks of this class of ships.
The plated fibreglass hull with its slender lines gives a good start to the model. All deck and superstructure parts are in printed 1mm & .5mm plastic sheet, with vac-formings used for the boats, funnels, gun shields and in the mounts of the triple t/tubes carried in this class of ship.
To complement the kit over 400 fittings in cast light alloy and cast plastic give the clutter and detail to enable a working model of showcase standard to be produced.

Deans Marine HMS Amazon
Deans Marine HMS Amazon
Ref: 1988
Tribal class or "F" class destroyers 1905 1908 programme.
One of the policies of the first sea lord in 1904 was the production of an ocean going destroyer which should have the following capabilities:-
A. Steam at 33 knots for 8 hrs in a moderate sea
B. Burn oil fuel
C. Carry 2 x 12.lb guns
D. Carry 7 days provisions "later 4 days"
This was something of a revolution in ship design requirements for those days, being 7.5 knots faster than any previous design particularly when the then novel turbines had yet to be built and tested (only 8 types were in service).
Tenders were at last taken up and building of the new "F" class began, divided into 3 separate groups. With no fewer than 7 different yards involved it is hardly surprising that few of the ships looked the same. The class was completed at an average cost of £137,000. On trials with a displacement of 1,000 tons a speed of 33 knots was achieved. The complement was 5 officers and 56 men.

Details of the kit
moulded fibreglass hull with all superstructures and decks in 1mm plastic, for one glue construction.
These models are designed with the beginner in mind and as a good starter to the world of warship modelling. They embody all the excitement of the building and driving of a warship without the task of constructing a full fleet model.
The simple structure on the decks of these ships makes for very quick construction and with all funnels and boats in vacformings, allied with a full set of fittings in cast light alloy and cast plastic makes for an attractive model.
These ships have all the performance of their bigger sisters and have one of the most outstanding sea keeping qualities of all the models in the range.

Deans Marine H.M.Y Britannia
Deans Marine H.M.Y Britannia
Ref: 1987
H.M.Y Britannia,
The origins of Britannia can be followed back to 1938 when it was agreed that the current yacht Victoria and Albet 111 was due for replacement.
The Admiralty prepared a set of outline drawings for tender. The start of WW11 postponed the project until 1952 when the idea was revived and subsequently ordered from John Browns shipyard on the Clyde due to their expertise in constructing top class ships such as the Queens and the Coronia.
She was named and launched by Her Majesty The Queen on the 16th April 1953 as the previous ship of this name was King George V11s racing yacht which was scuttled on his death in 1936. The fate of Britannia at the present time is undecided although the Queen has expressed the wish that some future role be found for the ship rather than see her broken up
Details of the kit:
The model of Britannia is based on a fibreglass hull with bulwarks, portholes, proptube exits and bilge keels moulded into the hull.
The construction of the superstructure is from computer generated printed plastic in 1mm and .5m.
To finish the assembly vacforms are provided for the funnel and all ships boats for those who wish to add lots of detail. Also included as an option are a complete set of the ships motor boat hulls with all detail moulded into the castings to give two options for the model.
To add the finishing touch, all fittings are included cast in light alloy or plastic.
Brass etchings are supplied for the Ships stanchions and ladders.
Proptubes fitted with oiling tubes and stainless steel shafts are included together with a comprehensive instruction book to aid assembly with sketches and pictures to assist in the construction. All part numbers are keyed to the FULL SIZE PLAN included in the kit.
Full details are supplied for the fitting of motors, nicads, and radio equipment.

Deans Marine H.M.S Hardy Type 14
Deans Marine H.M.S Hardy Type 14
Ref: 1972
H.M.S Hardy The original idea for Frigate design after World War 11 was that they should be of a single hull design that could be fitted out for various purposes. The type 14 which Hardy represents was the design for the minimum A/S frigate. She was built from prefabricated welded sections to allow for rapid assembly. Fitted with a single screw and powered by a Y100 single turbine gave a top speed of 28 knots on a modest output of 19,000 s.h.p. Much faster than wartime frigates of a simular size. The manoeuvrability of this hull design was outstanding and many are the stories of most of the crew breaking arms and legs. Without doubt, if they ever got their teeth into a submarine, with their 2 mortar MK 10's, the chances of it getting away would have been remote. Hardy was built at Yarrow and launched on the 25th November 1953.
Details of the kit: A lightweight glassfibre hull is the base for this model and to ease construction the break of the fo/castle is a separate moulding. Decks and all superstructure are constructed from printed plastic sheets, and to finish the model a complete set of fittings in cast light alloy and cast plastic are included. The complicated lattice mast is an alloy casting, all stanchions, ladders etc are in brass etched format. Comprehensive instructions and a FULL SIZE PLAN are included to ease assembly....

Deans Marine H.M.S Morcambe Bay
Deans Marine H.M.S Morcambe Bay
Ref: 1977
The Morcambe Bay was constructed by W Pickersgill in Sunderland and laid down on the 30/4/44 and launched on 1/1/44.
On a displacement of 2530 tons at full load she was powered by 2 x Admiralty three drum boilers driving four cylinder, triple expansion (yes that is correct) giving a total of 5.5oohp with a top speed of 19.5 knots. The ship carried a compliment of 157 men. In 1944 as the war moved to the Pacific, it was noted that a escort ship with a heavy A/A firepower was required to accompany the British fleet. A quick cure was to modify some of the Loch class frigates then under construction.
Accordingly 26 of the class were designated A/A frigates and called the Bay class.
The hull, superstucture, engines and basic layout of the new class remained unchanged.
The major changes were to the ships weapons, which consisted of two twin 4in A/A mountings and two twin 40mm bofors.
Fire control for the 4in guns was by Mkv director with a 285 radar, The 40mm s were directed by a simple tacymetric director on each mounting. For Anti_Sub use a Hedgehog mortar was mounted on thebfo/castle, whilst on the quarter deck was the usual outfit of rails and mortars.
Of the 26 vessels only 19 were completed as Bays, Six ships were completed to different designs such as survey vessels and despach vessels, one was cancelled.
The excellent seakeeping qualities of the hulls were ably demonstrated on several occasions when ships of the class rode out Typhoons which were a common hazard in the Far East.
By the mid 1950 the usefulness against modern aircraft was in decline, so in 1956 the first of the class went to the breakers. Several ships were sold abroad.
Mounts Bay and Morcambe Bay were sold to the Portuguese Navy after a refit at Thorneycrofts yard. as the Vaso da Gama and the Dom Francesco de Almeida. She was scrapped on the 7/9/70.

Details of the kit :
The fiberglass hull in this kit is with full plating and port detail.
Computer generated printed plastic forms the main superstructure along with the 1mm plastic deck.
To complete the construction of the model all complex parts are vacformed in 1mm plastic for funnel, boats, turret etc.
A complete set of fittings are included in the kit with all detail parts such as weapons, deck fittings, etc, cast in light alloy.
Larger item such as lockers, floats, and gun bases are moulded in plastic castings for light weight.
The lattice mast, such a notable feature of this class of ship is assembled from etched brass in four parts for simple assembly.
Ladders and stanchions are also in etched brass to give a final showcase finish.
Propshafts in stainless steel are cased in brass proptubes with fitted oilers and replaceable bearings along with rudder and tiller arm.
These, together with a comprehensive instruction book and a FULL SIZE PLAN assist in the assembly of this impressive model.

Deans Marine H.M.S Verulam
Deans Marine H.M.S Verulam
Ref: 1984
H.M.S Verulam On the night of the 16th May 1945, in company with 4 other vessels, Verulam, with Saumarez as the leader, proceeded into the straights of Malacca, where they located the Japanese cruiser "Haguro" and the destroyer KamiKaze. During this comparatively short action the Haguro was hit by 8 torpedoes and later sank, whilst the "KamiKaze" was hit by shell fire but escaped. Verulam was not damaged in this incident and it was considered to be the only classic destroyer attack of the second world war when torpedoes were fired. Verulam was built by Fairfield and Co and launched on the 23rd March 1943. Her trial displacement was 2,225 tons and over the measured mile she attained the speed of 32.7 knots. She was broken up on 23rd October 1972.

Details of the kit :
The plated glassfibre hull is the basis for this model of one of the fastest destroyers of W.W.11. The superstructures and decks are in 1mm plastic to give the crisp finish so noticeable on this type of ship. Funnels, ships boats, gun shield are in vacformed plastic for quick construction. To add the glasscase detail to the model further fittings are included in cast light alloy and plastic, together with propshafts and propellers. A full set of instructions and A FULL SIZE PLAN assist in the construction of this most elegant model which has earned the nickname the 40 knot "razor blade".

H.M.S Compass Rose
The Flower class corvette from Deans Marine represents a radical approach to kitting a successful attempt to produce a 1/96 scale warship at a price that will be acceptable to many, and a good start into the world of 1/8th" scale working models.
A glassfibre hull construction is featured which means that with limited exceptions only one type of adhesive is required (I used Humbrol liquid poly, plus 5 minute epoxy for sealing prop and rudder tube into place and fixing some of the larger cast fittings) such comparatively inexpensive materials results in a kit costing half as much as a good r/c system. Compliments to Marine Modelling Mag kit Review Augst/Sept 1987.

Details of the kit :
As noted above from a kit review in a leading marine modelling magazine, this kit , the first in a starter range consists of a one piece G/F hull with full plating detail.
Decks and superstructure are in 1mm and .5mm printed plastic sheet.
To add the required detail to the model without adding to top weight the kit includes over 100 items in cast light alloy or plastic, together with vacformings for the gun cab, funnel, boats etc. All stanchions, ladders, etc are
in etched brass. Propeller, rudder and tiller are also included together with our recommendations for the motor, coupling and nicads etc.

Deans Marine H.M.S Mohawk  Tribal class Destroyer
Deans Marine H.M.S Mohawk Tribal class Destroyer
Ref: 1976
Tribal class or "F" class destroyers 1905 1908 programme. One of the policies of the first sea lord in 1904 was the production of an ocean going destroyer which should have the following capabilities:-
A. Steam at 33 knots for 8 hrs in a moderate sea
B. Burn oil fuel
C. Carry 2 x 12.lb guns
D. Carry 7 days provisions "later 4 days"
This was something of a revolution in ship design requirements for those days, being 7.5 knots faster than any previous design particularly when the then novel turbines had yet to be built and tested (only 8 types were in service). Tenders were at last taken up and building of the new "F" class began, divided into 3 separate groups. With no fewer than 7 different yards involved it is hardly surprising that few of the ships looked the same.
The class was completed at an average cost of £137,000. On trials with a displacement of 1,000 tons a speed of 33 knots was achieved. The complement was 5 officers and 56 men.

Details of the kit:
The models are based on the period after the original ships' sea trials, when a number of modifications were carried out. To this end all ships were changed up gunned to 2 x 4inch guns forward funnels lengthened so that fumes cleared the bridge, turtle decks removed to a standard fo/castle. This gave the ships the classic destroyer outline. The base of these models is a one piece vacformed or moulded fibreglass hull with all superstructures and decks in 1mm plastic, for one glue construction.
These models are designed with the beginner in mind and as a good starter to the world of warship modelling. They embody all the excitement of the building and driving of a warship without the task of constructing a full fleet model. The simple structure on the decks of these ships makes for very quick construction and with all funnels and boats in vacformings, allied with a full set of fittings in cast light alloy and cast plastic makes for an attractive model.
These ships have all the performance of their bigger sisters and have one of the most outstanding sea keeping qualities of all the models in the range. As the choice of motor and couplings is very important in the construction of these ships they can be supplied with the kit on request.

Deans Marine H.M.S Loch Katrine
Deans Marine H.M.S Loch Katrine
Ref: 1974
The ships of the Loch class of A/S frigates represent the final product of wartime design of frigates.
They were designed to be mass produced in sections at dispersed sites and transported to an assembly point at a slipway. She was constructed at H. ROBB & Co in Lieth, laid down in 1943 and launched 21/8/44
Welding and riveting were used to speed production and a team of 60 men could build a ship of this class.
With a single 4 in gun on the focastle for surface action, the main weapons were beyond doubt the twin squid anti-submarine mortars, along with the high mounted rapid firing twin 20mm guns for anti-personnel work.
Only 28 Loch class ships were completed as Loch class frigates and a further 19 finished as the Bay class.
To speed construction curved structures were eliminated in the design and a noticeable result of this was the deck sheer was reduced to three straight lines
As completed the ships displaced 1435 tons. The power was supplied by four cylinder, triple expansion engines (yes that is correct) of 5,500 ihp driving two shafts giving a speed of 19.5 knots.
Weapons fit was a single 4mkv, a quad 2pdr, and 4 x twin 20mm Oerlikons. Two 3 barrel squid mortars were fitted forward and two D/C mortars fitted to the quarter deck with a single D/C rail aft.
Following the end of hostilities many ships were laid up or sold. The LOCH KATRINE was transferred to New Zealand in 1949 and renamed the H.M.N.Z.S ROTOITI. She was broken up in Hong Kong in 1962.

Details of the kit:
The fibreglass hull in this kit is with full plating and port detail.
Computer generated printed plastic forms the main superstructure along with the 1mm plastic deck.
To complete the construction of the model all complex parts are vacformed in 1mm plastic for funnel, boats, turret etc.

Deans Marine H.M.S Cossack Tribal class
Deans Marine H.M.S Cossack Tribal class
Ref: 1966
The re-armament race of the 1930's led to the major powers beginning construction of destroyers up to 2,000 tons. The British answer to these was the Super Destroyer of the "Tribal class" with 8 4.7" guns in twin mountings, thought by many to be the best looking of all destroyers ever built. The most famous of these was the
"COSSACK", due to the Altmark incident in the waters off the coast of Norway. This action made the Cossack a household name along with the famous cry of "THE NAVY'S HERE!
Others in the class were the MAORI, ESKIMO, MASHONA, GURKHA, AFRIDI, TARTAR, SOMALI, BEDUOIN, ASHANTI, PUNJABI, MATABELE, AND THE ZULU. These ships displaced 1,870 tons with geared turbines on two shafts giving 44,000 shp and a top speed of 36.5 knots.

Details of the kit :
This model is constructed with a plated glass fibre hull, with all portholes and intakes moulded into the hull.
To assist in the location of the running gear, the propshaft and rudder exits are marked on the hull. Decks and superstructure are in 1mm or .5mm plastic along with photo exploded views in the instructions to assist in construction.
All details are added from the large range of cast alloy and cast plastic fittings included in the kit together with a full running gear set comprising stainless steel propshafts, hard brass proptubes with replaceable bearings, rudder and tiller.

Deans Marine H.M.S Daring
Deans Marine H.M.S Daring
Ref: 1967
The "D" class destroyers were typical of the whole series of successive classes from A to I built for the R.N. in the 1930's. In general these were economy designs and tended to be smaller and less well armed than destroyers of other major foreign powers. H.M.S. Daring was commanded by Lord Louis Mountbatten in 1934. She was torpedoed by a U boat on the 18th February 1940 off Duncansby Head Scotland. Daring was launched by Thornycroft in 1932 on a Displ of 1.375 tons.
Her main weapons were 4x 4.7" guns and 8 x 21in torpedo tubes, with geared turbines on 2 shafts giving 36,000 s.h.p. and a top speed of 36 knots.
When placed along side the V & W in our range, this shows how the destroyers progressed in the 1920/30's.

Details of the kit:
This model is based on a plated glass fibre hull, with the superstructure and decks in 1mm plastic. Vac-forms for the funnels, boats, etc, cast alloy main weapons and close range armament. To add the final crisp finish to the model, brass etchings are supplied for all stanchion, ladders etc.

Swordfish LS369 was credited with sinking U-Boat 'U674' on 1st May 1944 whilst protecting Convoy RA59 sailing to the UK from Kola in Russia
Sailing from San Diego 2 July 1943, Croatan arrived at Norfolk 19 July. As the nucleus for a hunter-killer group, she sailed 5 August for antisubmarine operations in the Atlantic covering the movement of convoys.
Her planes had two skirmishes with surfaced submarines and on 5 September initiated night flying operations from escort carriers. She returned to Norfolk 22 September.
From 17 October to 29 December 1943, Croatan made two voyages to Casablanca ferrying aircraft and plane crews for the North African operations. After another antisubmarine patrol from 14 January to 27 February 1944, she took part in tests with the Naval Research Laboratory at Annapolis. From 24 March to 11 May, Croatan made a most successful patrol. On 7 April, her planes marked out U-856, which was sunk by her escorts Champlin (DD-601) and Huse (DE-145) at 40d 18m N., 62d 22m W. On the night of 25-26 April, her four escorts joined in sinking U-488 at 17d 54m N., 38d 05m W.
She was also successful in her patrol from 2 June to 22 July. On 10 June, Croatan's planes and escorts Frost (DE-144), Huse, and Inch (DE-146) attacked U-490 and remained in constant contact with it, forcing it to surface the next day.
Sixty survivors, including the commanding officer, were rescued before the submarine sank from scuttling charges at 42d 47m N., 40d 08m W. Aircraft and escorts Frost and Inch combined again to sink U-154 on 3 July.
Following a brief overhaul and radar tests with the Naval Research Laboratory, Croatan put to sea again 20 August 1944. On 15 September, she aided survivors from Warrington (DD-383) who had foundered in a hurricane. Returning to Norfolk 1 October, Croatan next sailed for antisubmarine training at Guantanamo Bay and Bermuda, then proceeded to provide air cover for a high-speed east bound task force, returning to New York 4 February 1945.
For the next month, she qualified pilots in carrier operations, then sailed from Norfolk 25 March to join a barrier line to intercept German submarines. On 16 April, her escorts, Frost and Stanton (DE-247) sank U-880 and U-1235 at 47d 53m N., 30d 26m W. Croatan returned by way of Argentia, Newfoundland to New York 14 May for overhaul.
From 15 September to 3 November 1945, Croatan qualified aviators at Quonset Point, then cleared Norfolk 23 November on the first of two transatlantic voyages to bring troops home from Le Havre, Franceon 16 June 1958. In August 1963, she carried 23 Lockheed F-104 Starfighter delivered to the Royal Norwegian Air Force 331 Squadron at Bodø,
Norway. In October 1964, she served as an experimental ship under NASA control until May 1965. She was stricken for disposal 15 September 1970 and sold for scrap in 1971.

Ref: 1969
She was ordered on the 12th June 1941 with 7 others of a class all with names beginning with the letter "U" ie: ULSTER and when launched she was the leader of the 7th emergency flotilla.
In 1943 Grenville in company with other destroyers took part in night sweeps up and down the French coast. On the night of the 3/4th October, Grenville and the 4 other ships encountered 5 German R class destroyers who had laid a trap for them.
A battle commenced with heavy damage and casualties suffered by both sides. Grenville was hit and stopped. The rest of her war was spent in the Bay of Biscay, where she had a very active career.
The full story, told by her captain, is to be found in the book "DESTROYER CAPTAIN" by Roger Hill. In our opinion this is one of the finest true sea stories that we have ever read and for the modeller it is a must. During the 1950's Grenville with the rest of her sisters were converted to type 15 Frigates.
She was scrapped by Romanet Ltd of Rochester Kent, and the No X draught mark was removed and presented to DEANS MARINE.
Details of the kit;
The plated glass fibre hull is the base for this kit. Deck support beams are from balsa and hardwood, main decks and super structure are in 1mm plastic for quick assembly and vac-formings for the funnel,

Deans Marine H.M.S Hannibal Majestic class
Ref: 1971
In 1895 the first of the Majestic class battleships came into service.
This started a naval revolution as startling as the one that followed the launching of the DREADNOUGHT. For the first time 4 new sets of designs were put together in one ship making them what is now known as a PREDREADNOUGHT.
The four new technologies were high velocity main weapons, quick firing 6" mid calibre guns. face hardened armour, and telescopic gunsights.
The MAJESTICS were the first capital ships whose main weapons were effective in rough seas due to their high freeboard and good sea keeping qualities. The visual impact of these ships at that time cannot be imagined, but they must have been the same as the "star wars" weapons of today, and they made the British fleet supreme the world over.

Details of the kit :
One of the most complicated and detailed model in the Deans fleet, and truly the PRIDE OF THE FLEET.
Some of the major features of this model are the one piece fibreglass hull with all plating detail and armour belt, plus all casemates, hatches portholes, anchor bedplates, and the massive ram bow all moulded into the hull; one piece fibreglass moulded superstructure with deck planking and gun port detail engraved into the moulding. Full size plan in 2 parts with photo exploded instruction book to ease assembly of this massive model.
A large sheet of brass etchings with over 300 items, adds the final super-detail to the majestic model.

Ref: 1973
H.M.S. Inflexible was launched at the Royal Dockyard Portsmouth in 1876 and was armed with 4 x 16 MLR guns in two turrets set en-echelon.
Plus 2 x t/tubes and 2 x torpedo carriages, a varied assortment of guns from 4.7 to 20pdrs and many lighter weapons, with 8407 IHP she could make 14.75 knots.
The importance of Inflexible, in design terms, is that she was the supreme example of the citadel ship, designed to take punishment. The central part of the ship is a huge cofferdam, protecting the engines, boilers and magazines, with up to 24 inches of armour making her the most heavily armoured ship even built.
It was universally agreed that she was the ugliest ship afloat, however her size and gun power caught the publics imagination, plus the wrangling between the designer N Barnaby and the chief constructor E Reed made this ship such a sensation as in the Dreadnought debate a quarter of a century later.
She served twice in the Med and as guard ship to Portsmouth in 1901, and was sold for breaking up in 1903.The most complicated and detailed model in the Deans Marine collection . Some of the major features of this model are;
the one piece fibreglass hull with all plating and portlight details, the Rambow is a separate glass fibre casting, one piece fibreglass moulded Glacis plate with non-slip, and gun port detail engraved into the moulding, the two turrets are also glass fibre mouldings, as are the two funnels and uptakes.
Decks are from 1.5mm pre printed plastic, the superstructure is from 1mm & .5mm plastic, there are 17 vacformings for boats, decks etc, the deck planking is pre-printed on cast vinyl and is self adhesive.
