    Please tell us more about her, looks a very nice model. Did you build her from scratch or a kit?. Hopefully we'll see her in the water one of these days.

    Nerys FYIπŸ˜‰,
    "Loyal class Fleet Tenders

    The Loyal class Fleet Tenders were purpose built in the late seventies by Richard Dunston of Thorn, South Yorkshire, as training vessels for the RNXS, they were based on a proven MOD/RMAS design for supply tenders

    However, in the RNXS version the hold was converted at build stage for extra accommodation for RNXS crew. They had interior hatches down into the converted holds, now fitted with bunks and living quarters. Externally, they are very similar to the "Clovelly class" supply Fleet Tenders.
