HMS Hermes Falklands 40 Model

  • This model has been designed and made to commemorate the anniversary of the 1982 Falklands conflict.  These are limited edition models of HMS Hermes, the flagship of the Royal Navy taskforce that re-captured the Islands.  

    Each model is manufactured from the original flight deck recovered during the vessel’s disassembly.  Shipped back to the UK by Trinity Marine following the end of the carrier’s life as INS Viraat in India, the recovered metal has been melted down and folded into copper to form the marine bronze used for casting. Each of the models are entirely designed, made and hand finished in the UK.

    Key product details:

    • Mounted on a hand-crafted wooden base, each casting has been made using material reclaimed from HMS Hermes during her disassembly.
    • Model features the Falklands era ski-jump.
    • Designed, handmade and finished in the UK.
    • Serialised limited edition release.
    • Each model sold supports veterans in employment and the Falklands Veterans Foundation and its operation of “Liberty Lodge” in Port Stanley.
    • Each model comes beautifully packaged and complete with a serialised certificate with embossed gold leaf and an information booklet on the ship’s history.
    • Model measures 120mm and sits on a wooden base measuring 135 x 80mm.
