Recommended to help build HMS Duke of York as she appeared in 1945 from:
The ships of the UK's World War II-era King George V class are handsome and among the last Royal Navy battleships. All had terrific service records. HMS Duke of York is best remembered for her part in the sinking of the German battleship DKM Scharnhorst in December, 1943 off the northern coast of Norway. Like many warships, each ship of the class is slightly different in appearance.
This is the extended searchlight platform fit to the aft funnel to provide a firing position for an additional 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannon. This part is needed to convert your model to HMS Duke of York as she appeared after her 1944-45 refit.
- proper asymmetrical splinter shielding shape when viewed from above
- integrated venturi (wind deflector)
- detailed underside supporting structures
- underside trunking
HACS Mk.V Directors and the post-refit Extended Signal Deck are available separately to complete your conversion. Some minor adjustment to the part may be needed for best fit.
