    Another semi-kit from Rob Fowler, rob4boats@yahoo.co.uk, who also supplied my MASB.
    The hull is very well made and extremely robust.
    At 1/24 scale fittings and crew are easily available so there was very little to scratch build. I can only claim ownership of the lockers, and splinter matting (made from Lilliput).
    The colour scheme is (loosely), based on Western Approaches camouflage and this was my first attempt at weathering. On reflection it looks quite clunky close up but looks okay on the water.

    Was this known during WW2 as the Fairmile 'B'? Superb model in any case.

    Thank you Nerys. No, the Fairmile B was a different boat, longer and heavier than the HDML.

    I started to build an HDML 5 years ago from a MODEL Boats free plan.
    It has been on the water but I have not finished all the fittings etc. I hope this will give me the kick to get on with it.

    A nice looking model. Were any HDML's ever painted like this or is it an imaginative rendition? Mine looks very dreary all grey. Mine got dropped on the floor and trampled on during my daughter's 18th birthday party. It needs rebuilding and I fancy painting it a similar colour scheme to your's.
    Best wishes Tim
