Made by Atlas Editions, these beauties are 1:350 scale -- the most popular of the larger ship scales.  Pre-assembled and painted, each includes a display stand with a metal plate denoting the boat and the year depicted and, perhaps best of all, each features a cutaway bow section that reveals interior details!

HMS Hood (pennant number 51) was the last battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy. Commissioned in 1920, she was named after the 18th-century Admiral Samuel Hood. One of four Admiral-class battlecruisers ordered in mid-1916, Hood had serious design limitations, though her design was drastically revised after the Battle of Jutland and improved while she was under construction. For this reason she was the only ship of her class to be completed.

As one of the largest and, ostensibly, the most powerful warships in the world, Hood was the pride of the Royal Navy and, carrying immense prestige, was known as ‘The Mighty Hood’.
