This model offered by Premier Ship Models is a detailed replica of the HMC Cockchafer, a Royal Navy Insect-class gunboat launched in 1915 as a fifth ship carrying this name. Ships from the Insect-class spent much of their service in China despite the fact that they were designed to sail the Danube River. During the First World War, she was commissioned to defend the south east coast of England and she served on the Dvina River in Russia during the intervention of British forces to Russia in 1919-1920.

HMS Cockchafer and several other Insect-class ships were sent to China to patrol and protect the British nationals. HMS Cockchafer was operating on the Yangtze River where one significant accident occurred in 1926 when Cockchafer was sailing in the Wanzhou District, also known as Wanhsien, where she was participating in a rescue mission.

After commissions in the Second World War in China, East Indies and Iran, HMS Cockchafer was transferred to Mediterranean Fleet at Malta to help in operations in Sicily and Elba to end again in Indian Ocean. She was sent to Singapore in 1945 to be placed in reserve and in 1949 as a last surviving Insect class gunboat was sold for scrap.

Text: Thierry,

The more I look at your team's work, the more impressed I am - it's an excellent model by any standards but, given the limited plans and so on, it really is very impressive - thank you.  Although demand is likely limited, I also hope you find a way to model more Insect Class Gunboats, and perhaps in greater detail if you ever get your hands on those plans
