HMS Hood was the last battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy, and she’s also the only completed battlecruiser of the Admiral-class. Construction of Hood began in 1916. Commissioned in 1920, she was then the largest warship in the world. She was involved in many important tasks during her service life and was regarded as the pride of the Royal Navy.
On May 24th, 1941, the battlecruiser HMS Hood and the battleship HMS Prince of Wales engaged with the German battleship Bismarck in the Denmark Strait. In the battle, Hood’s magazine was shot by Bismarck. She sank in the cold Denmark Strait with Vice-Admiral Lancelot Holland and 1,418 men onboard.
The Hood is one of the Warship Builder series plastic models. Thanks to the bold design, the famous war machine in real life has been transformed to a cute warship model. This kit includes light grey, dark grey and dark red parts. This model can be built in a quick and enjoyable way thanks to the press-fit assembly design and adhesive stickers.
