Our friends at Icarus Originals are proud to produce this unique limited edition model of ‘HMS Hermes’, the flagship of the Royal Navy taskforce that re-captured the Islands, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1982 Falklands conflict.
Now you can own a piece of British naval history, as each model is manufactured from the original flight deck recovered during the vessel’s disassembly; the recovered metal has been melted down and folded into copper to form the marine bronze used for casting. Model measures 12cm long and sits on a wooden base measuring 13x8cm and arrives gift boxed with an individually-numbered certificate of authenticity and information booklet on the ship’s history.
These models are entirely designed, made and hand finished in the UK, and a donation on every sale will be paid to Falklands Veterans Foundation and its operation of ‘Liberty Lodge’ in Port Stanley. Moreover, the manufacturing of the product supports veterans in the UK too; Icarus Originals was co–founded by a blind ex Royal Navy Officer, whilst the wooden plinth is made by Veterans Woodcraft in Yorkshire.

Husband was over the moon with it. Well presented, well made classic piece.
This is a superbly poignant tribute to all those who fought, some of whom lost their lives, to Keep The Falkland Islands British following the Invasion of the Islands by forces of the Argentine military Junta on 2nd April 1982. It is also a most evocative model.
