I saw somewhere the kit contains a J class destroyer. Does anyone know which ship it's supposed to be? I think the instructions show a pennant number of G61 but I don't know of any J class with that pennant number and letter. Any idea's?

HMS JAVELIN wore pendant number G61. Why she is included in a set entitled "Battle of the Atlantic" is unclear - she spent very little time in the Atlantic!

Decals in the kit are G61/F61 HMS Javelin and G85/F85 HMS Jupiter

We (dick and I) provided input on the Javelin scheme for this, but we didn't know it was to go into an Atlantic set at the time! We were just asked about Javelin in 1942.

The kit should be accurate for the scheme as shown in the instructions in terms of fit so you'll get a good mid-1942 Javelin out of it - it just wasn't in the Atlantic at the time it looked the way it's shown.

I wonder if Flyhawks J class destroyer was released ahead of scheduled so it could compete with Aoshimas J class destroyer. Flyhawks J class destroyer is the only ship that does not include PE. It is possible to use the PE released with the kelly but it is not completely accurate.
