HMS Daring

1/600 HMS Daring (Airfix)

This old kit builds into a very nice model with the addition of the Photo etch from the White Ensign Models Post WW2 RN set.  The main turrets were the originals but heavily modified to correct the proportions.  The original Mark 6 Director was replaced with the more modern MRS3, of which I had a few spare from an Airfix Tiger kit.  Scratch built walkways also needed to be added above the torpedo tubes.
