I’ve just found a photo of the new Fore Hobby 1942 S-Boat, couldn’t find a price though. It seem Fore Hobby is a new start up company.View attachment 625280

Around £77.76 according to the ebay links on that page
 
Fairline was founded in 1963 at Oundle Marina making fibreglass cabin cruisers.
Brain fade should have wrote Fairmile, anyway I found some screenshots of the family line A,B,C and D boats. The earlier boats were classed as MLs it was the D (Dog) boats that were classed as MGB or MTBs.
In order.

Just bought this, will report if good!!!
Disappointed with the illustrations. Very poor sizing and reproduction. Not much use to a modeller.
However the text is excellent and gives a good overview of E Boat operations in WW2.
Poignant that the last E Boat "success" was a blue on blue with a hospital/refugee ship being sunk in the Baltic.
Large loss of life.

Brave men fighting for a cause that was not worthy of them.
 
Eduard do a photoetched detail set for the Revell kit, but I can't find on for the Airfix version. Ebay wanted £107 plus £50 postage, crazy price, got the set for £28 direct from the eduard site, using paypal, Might well be using them a bit more in the future.
