I have an Airfix launch set somehwere but bought it mainly for the blue toy RN Phantom which is likw the 1/100 Tamiya Phantom.
There used to be an excellent site by Keith Beedall on the programme for the RN. The excellent Secret Projects UK a
site has lots of material.
I was in Whitehall in 1998 and remember telling Labour MPs younger than me about the 1966 Carrier decision.
Though I love the CVA01 in model form Healey was right to focus our limited resources on building nuke subs. If they had been deployed sooner in 1982 we could have avoided the Falklands War.
I would have traded QE and POW for more Astutes.
The new Chinese carriers are lovely Belgrano style prey for Western SSNs.
