About the model

With such a long service life in both military and civilian guises, this model can be built as either, providing the modeller with a choice of completing either model, each having their own character.
Whichever version you build the result is a large impressive model, which is a great performer on the water.

The photos opposite are a mixture of both versions.




Prototype history [click]
Typical of many such craft built for servicing fleet vessels. One of a group built by Yarwoods of Northwich, C.642 was launched in 1946 and served until being placed for disposal in 1956. Purchased by F.T. Everard & Sons Ltd of Greenwich, Kent, C.642 was renamed the 'Clanity' and used for a short period as a dry cargo carrier before being lengthened and widened in a conversion to a tanker. Steam propulsion was retained until she ended her days in a scrap yard in Antwerp in 1969.
