Taiwan Naval Ships 1/350 & 1/700


The Kang Ding Class are La Fayette Class frigates built for the Taiwanese Navy. In 1992, the Taiwanese government contracted with prime contractor Thales (formerly Thomson CSF),
arranging for the construction of six ships. Weapons assembly was to take place in Taiwan, carried out by the China SB Corporation at Kaohsiung.

The frigates were constructed at French state shipbuilder DCN's Lorient Naval Dockyard. The first ship, the Kang Ding, arrived at Taiwan’s Tsoyng naval base in May 1996;
the final frigate of the six, Chan Te, was launched in August 1996, and was commissioned for service with the Republic of China Navy in January 1998.
Hulls include: Kang Ding (1202), which was commissioned in June 1996, Si Ning (1203), in September 1996, Wu Chang (1205), in December 1997,
Di Hua (1206), in August 1997, Kun Ming (1207), in August 1998 and Chen Te (1209), in January 1998.
