RSS Daring; Independence class, sub class 'B'.
Commissioned 1972. Based on Vosper 110 foot hull.

Can't find a model of her though 🤔 (and if I can't .....!)
Try looking for one of the others in the class.
Happy hunting, cheers, Doug 😎

Hi
I have recently completed RSS P72 Sovereignty, based on a Veron 54" hull giving 1/24 scale. Unfortunately the boat is not for sale, and I don't think the Veron hull is available.
However, I have done a lot of research during my build, so if you do find anything part built I would be pleased to help.

I thought it was you Steve👍 but wasn't sure.
I remembered the business about the gun turret😉
Cheers, Doug 😎
BTW: Why is your boat wearing Justice's pennant number !?😲

Ah, the gun turret. The things you can do with half a ball cock!
However, I would beg to differ with the pennant number.
My information came from
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence-class_patrol_craf...
If you click on ref number 5 it shows the source here

What an idiot!! (Me, not you Doug)
Dementia rules, KO.
Must stop drinking whisky.
In answer to your question - not a clue! Going to bed for an early night.
Cheers (I think)
Steve

Thought it was odd Steve, unusual for you!
My info came from WikiWand, sort of WikiPedia on steroids😉

Naah! Don't give up the 'water of life', maybe just a little original spring water with it😉 I toast you with a 16 year Lagavulin! Sláinte 😊

Lovely stuff 'Superstition'👍 Elegant bottle as well.
Lagavulin is from further south on Islay and a tad darker and peatier.
I like 'em both. Cheers John! All the best, Doug 😎

I thought you'd recognise Superstition from liking Lagavulin I can't seem to find any locally. I'll wait till I can get out . Aldi do some nice ones. One in particular is nice and oaky/peaty. Can't recall the name right now but Ant got it for me for my birthday last year. Lovely stuff. With not drinking much It takes a long time to sup it🤓 Still sad when it's gone though😭 Sorry I nodded off so never saw G'night post.
G'night doug😤👍

Mornin John,
Yes, so far I haven't found an Islay malt I don't like.
Jura was the first I ran across and their Superstition is very nice.
Lagavulin was a recommendation from a secretary (!) at work a few years ago, and the group I worked for (Naval Communications Systems) gave me a decent supply when I retired last year 😊
The EDEKA chain here have a few larger 'up market' stores which carry a decent selection, including Jura and Lagavulin etc, at halfway reasonable prices. 😉 For more exotic varieties there is 'The Whisky Shop' in the centre of Munich. Spoilt for choice😋😋
'Through the teeth, round the gums, look out stomach, here it comes' 😁
All the best, Doug 😎
