There dont seem to be many British ww2 Destroyers in any scale.

White ensign have a couple but a little too expensive.
Dragon and Trumpeter do have loads of US and japanees destroyers,

what am looking for is a Tribal class in any scale.

reguards

That's a E class, representing HMS Electra that comes with the Tammy Hood.

Airfix also makes a 1/600 Tribal class, the HMS Cossack, the ship that rescued the allied prisoners captured by the Graf Spee. Airfix also has a set of four 1/600 destroyers, it has the Campletown, ex USS four piper type, the Hostspur, the Cossack, and a German Narvik class.

and then there's also the oldies:
Matchbox 1/700 Destroyer HMS Kelly
Skywave O-Class HMS Onslow (2 in the box)

Usually they are available at eBay (both kind of expensive...)

Hope this helps

I would also love to have a Tribal or any other 1/350, 1/144 or 1/72 British destroyers. WEM and Iron Shipwrights sell some, but they are all resin and I have almost no experience working with it.

Hi Ion

Resin is not hard or difficult to work with... just different!
You also have to be very carefull with your health, using a dust mask when sanding or cutting big parts with power tools (or jand saw).
You can read Mike Taylor's Feature "Working with Resin Ships"
Hope this helps

Hi Ion,

Regarding resin--how much experience did you have working with plastic when you first started building models? ;^)

Resin's not tough to work with, and we've got more RN subjects on the way.
