Hello all im a newbie from the USA. I have two other threads going one in ww2 aircraft and ww2 armor. If im exceeding or breaking limits/rules my apologies. My quest is this i am something of a an ameteur historian, and definitely my families historian. Now for the question. I had a granduncle that left chicago when he was 16 (yes he lied about his age) to join the polish navy in exile. He went through canada and on to the UK. Where he was part of the Royal navy with there polish navy in exile group. He was on the ORP Kujawiak from 1940 until she was sunk near malta in 1942. I know that he was on multiple convoy escort runs to north america, egypt, the soviet union, and malta. The Kujawiak was an Hunt class Destroyer escort phase 2 I believe. I may be wrong in my terminology. But i have photos, discharge papers and other materials to state he was on that ship. I have been looking on and off over the past 30 years for his ships and my grandfathers tanks (the armor thread i have going). So i ask all here at Britmodeller. Does anyone make this ship (hunt class phase 2) in 1/350 scale ? Ultimately i will build it if i have to scratch build/modify something else. But rather build a straight up kit. Also if someone does make a kit, i will need advice on colors as all photos i have are black and white. I thank everyone in advance. Dennis
