JANES BOOK OF FIGHTING SHIPS. Have published the latest additions to the Royal Navy , commissioned by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) 

This reflects the cutbacks in "Pocket Battleships." 

A spokesperson for the MOD said. 

"This is a remarkable innovation, because of their reduced size they are less of a target also because they are ineffective (unarmed) makes them even less of a target. Combined with the sheer cheapness to build, 100 million each and that we have gone back to wind power, makes them a sure winner. 

We asked "Airfix." for a comment. They said. 

"Look nice don't they." 

The MOD are currently looking for two inch sailors to crew the vessels. 

"We are sure they are out there." they said.
