HMS Vanguard naval miniature ship, scale model 1:1800 , battleship
HMS Vanguard was a British fast battleship built during World War II and commissioned after the end of the war. She was the only ship of her class and was the biggest, fastest and last of the Royal Navy's dreadnoughts, and the final battleship to be launched in the world.

Using four twin 15-inch mountings in storage allowed for the construction of a single fast battleship more quickly than building the Lion-class ships. The turrets were originally used by the battlecruisers Courageous and Glorious during World War I and were removed during the conversions of these ships to aircraft carriers in the 1920s.

Launched: 30 November 1944

Displacement: 51,420

Commissioned: 9 August 1946

Complement: 1,975


IN: 5.447 w x 0.732 d x 0.811 h
CM: 13.836 w x 1.86 d x 2.06 h
