    This is a model of one of the Royal Australian Navies new Armidale class patrol boats which replaced the older Fremantle class boats (all of which have now been decomissioned).
    This particular vessel is the HMAS Hammersley from the TV series "Sea Patrol" the Armidale class will feature in the 2nd series of this popular drama series.
    This render was a joint effort between myself and Jason Simpson who is a member of the Royal Australian Navy and helped me tremendously with reference material as well as modeling the hull and superstructure and a lot of work on the masts. I modeled a lot of the little details, the RHIBS and davits, Typhoon cannon and other bits & pieces.

      Beautiful model, loads of accurate detail (at least I assume it's accurate). It's interesting how you decided to do it as a miniature model.

      thanks! I originally wanted to put this in the sea, but I gave up trying to render convincing looking seawater. I instead opted for the scale model look.

      I know what you mean, I decided to to da an animation over water. It was very hard, and it takes ages to render, so long that I still haven't finished.

      This is pretty cool, the navy should bring out a model of this. (I shall speak to my contacts!)

      Is this a kit or an actual miniature model, of Hammersley, please ?

      john.wy In a way it's a model, but one that exists only on computer. It was rendered fully in the 3D graphics software 3D Max, by myself and a member of the R.A.N
