My Scratchbuilt 1/350 HMS Prince of Wales - R09































This build was commissioned by Airfix for display at SMW 2019 (where the last six pictures were taken) and it's final home will be the Hornby Hobbies Visitor Centre in Margate. The final picture shows the handover of the model to Darrell Burge of Airfix.

If anybody is interested in seeing an Airfix kit of QE Class aircraft carriers, let them know at pr@hornby.com

Thank you all for your kind comments.

It makes suffering the stress of the build and gaining a few more grey hairs worthwhile!
