HMS Monmouth F235, Type 23/Duke class frigate Trumpeter 1/350 + infini models PE set. Was working about month and half on this kit as there very many PE parts in infini models set. It is sixth ship of Duke class. Affectionately known as “The Black Duke”, Monmouth is the only ship in service with the Royal Navy that has its name painted in black (all other RN vessels have their name in red) and flew a plain black flag in addition to the ensign. This is due to the dissolution of the title and the blacking out of the Coat of Arms of the Duke of Monmouth in 1685 following the Monmouth Rebellion against James II of England. (source wikipedia.org) She was decommissioned on 30 June 2021.
