RJ PP 019 Hamina
New 1/1250 scale model of the Finish fast attack craft Hamina from the PP series by Rhenania Junior (RJ PP 019).
The Hamina class vessels were built in the late 1990s, early 2000s, and are the fourth generation of Finnish missile craft. The vessel's hull is constructed of aluminum and the superstructures are constructed of re-enforced carbon fiber composite. The vessels have a very low displacement and are very maneuverable. They are equipped with water jets instead of propellers, which allow them to operate in very shallow waters and accelerate, slow down and turn in unconventional ways.
The class has been designed and constructed as stealth ships with minimal magnetic, heat and radar signatures.
