~ A Fine Radio Control Model of H.M.S Ark Royal ~

This is a fine 1/96th scale model of the light aircraft carrier and former flagship of the Royal Navy.
The model represents here configuration at the point of decommissioning.
Inside, there are two 12v DC motors driving the rear propellers, two Type 43HX electronic speed controllers, a 6 channel signal converter as well as a speaker to the rear for the siren.

The helicopter to the deck is also functioning, with the top blades able to rotate as they are wired to a single motor below deck.
All three radars rotate too.

The ship is controlled by a state of the art Sanwa RD 6000 Super Radio Dynamics remote control. Please note that it is currently fitted with 35MHz crystals, this frequency is reserved for R/C aircraft, so will need to be changed to 40MHz before use. They cost around £3.80 on EBay.

The ship has a Fleetscale fibre glass hull - the rest is scratch built - with the dividing compartments to the inside made from wood and metal brackets to support the equipment. It also has a wooden deck and opening compartments.

It comes with its own display stand
with foam supports.

~ H.M.S Ark Royal (R07) ~

HMS Ark Royal is a decommissioned light aircraft carrier and former flagship of the Royal Navy. She was the third and final vessel of Invincible-class. Built by Swan Hunters on the River Tyne and launched in 1981 by Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, she followed sister ships HMS Invincible and HMS Illustrious into service in 1985.

Affectionately known as The Mighty Ark, she is the fifth Royal Navy ship to have borne the name of the 1587 flagship that defeated the Spanish Armada in 1588. Originally intended to be named Indomitable to match the rest of the class, this was changed due to the public reaction to the loss of the Ark Royal name after the scrapping of the previous Ark Royal in 1980, after 30 years' service.

Slightly larger than her sister ships, and with a steeper ski-jump ramp, Ark Royal carried the STOVL (Short Take Off and Vertical Landing) Harrier Jump Jet aircraft, as well as various helicopters. With a crew complement of over 1,000 sailors and aviators, she saw active service in the 1990s Bosnian War and the 2003 Invasion of Iraq.

Length: 216.5cm
Width: 36.5cm
