Wood art pyrography of Type 21 Frigate HMS Amazon.

 

Aprox 9.75 x 5 inches (250 x 180mm). Price includes UK P&P.

 

I have drawn this pyrography artwork on a section of Yew log. HMS Amazon was the first Type 21 frigate to enter service with the Royal Navy in 1971, but the last in this class of warships to be fitted with the Exocet anti-ship missile system. The Type 21 was fast with a top speed of 37 knots (though some Captains claimed to have acheived 40 knots).  

 

Designed as a "general purpose" frigate, the Type 21 carried Exocet anti-ship missiles as well as sea-cat anti-aircraft weapons and a Westland Lynx helicopter as an anti-submarine asset. They were powered by Rolls Royce Tyne and Olympus gas turbines with a top speed of around 37 knots - so fast that the Captain of another Type 21, HMS Ambuscade, was able to water-ski behind her!
