This is my scratch-built model of the Daring class destroyer HMS Diamond, as she appeared in 1953. The scale is 1/350th and all construction was done with plastic sheet ,and spare parts. I used a set of Nexus plans in 1" = 8 feet. The 4.5 barrels were BMK  4.7" brass barrels. The model took 7 weeks to complete and a full W-I-P can be found here :
