The Leander Class Frigate was the first ship kit that I ever built-and the first one still plods along in my fleet as the F55. I have since gone on to build 12 examples of one of the RNís finest GP Frigates, of which the three Iím showing today show a cross-section of them. These Airfix kits are easy to build and make good projects for beginners. As you will see the more I built the more Airfix parts I replaced, even entire parts of the superstructure on Almirante Lynch, and have made extensive use of parts from Skywave/Dragon Models.
