The Trumpeter HMS Kent F78 in 1/350 scale from the plastic ship model kits range accurately recreates the real life Duke Class (Type 23) Frigate.

This Trumpeter ship model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Trumpeter plastic models range.

For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.

We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.

The Type 23 frigate is a class of frigate serving with the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom. All the ships are named after British Dukes, thus the class is also known as the Duke class. The first Type 23 was commissioned in 1989, and the sixteenth, HMS St Albans was launched in May 2000 and commissioned in June 2002. The combination of Merlin helicopters with their advanced anti submarine equipment, and Sonar 2087, has according to the Royal Navy, re-affirmed its reputation as a leader in anti-submarine warfare. HMS kent(F78) was commissioned on 8 June 2000 and was the first ship to enter Royal Navy service in the 21st Century.

    trumpeter 1/350 type 23 HMS Kent model

    This must be one over airfix as Trumpeter has gotten this model of a modern UK warship out before they bring out the type 45 which shipping date has moved several times. very nice detail model of a type 23 frigate, but i would have liked to been able to have more decals so that you could then name the ship.
