There are plastic kits of hunt class 2 on Ebay though not of Wilton ,they are 1-700 scale and are made by IBG Models a Polish company ,i used the model to make a model of HMS Wilton as my uncle served on her between 04/02/1942 and 10/11/1943 he was a petty officer stoker ,i used a vernier caliper to up scale the model by 8 times as you can see off the picture the plastic model is pretty small

What a splendid result you have achieved, particularly working from such a small "original". Apologies for my late arrival but, if you are planning to hoist the most appropriate flags and no one can provide L128's callsign, you could always use the last WILTON's as a little in-house joke, namely GOTW I believe.

Thanks for that ,i have since seen a model of Wilton flying a three flag call sign FMG perhaps prefix of G ,not well up with R N call signs ,do the navy only show three flags and leave the prefix letter missing and was this only during WW2,we have a lot of navy ships coming to Darwin especialy U.S ships who fly four flags beginning with the prefix N
