I've been looking over the new Orange Hobby Batch 3 which looks so well done, but it only makes me crave a Batch 1. Has anyone heard any rumors to the effect that Orange Hobby are going to do a Batch 1? I've been holding off getting the WEM Brilliant hoping for something a little more finely done - or even an injected molded kit which I don't think is a real possibility.

There is only the WEM kit of the Type 22 Batch 1. I guess it is currently difficult to get, but it could be that it was available with both types of funnels.

Here is HMS Brilliant I built using the WEM kit:

I am surprised that none of the Falklands ships are available in 1/350 scale. The Type 42 and Type 22 were very busy in 1982 and of course Hercules and Santissima Trinidad. There were plans to turn the latter into a floating museum but I doubt if that will happen after she sank at her moorings.

I wish trumpeter would give the Type 22 some attention, they were handsome ships and I think Chile still operates some?

Three of the Type 22 Batch 1 are in service with the Brazilian navy. The Chilean navy has a Type 22 Batch 2, Almirante Williams ex Sheffield. Romania has two other Batch 2. But only the two Batch 1, Broadsword and Brilliant, fought at Falkland. Today only Broadsword still serves as Greenhalgh for the Brazilian navy.

Interesting, thanks Maxim.
