I have always really liked this class of ships. I thinks it's those huge quadruple turrets that get me. I wanted to do the KG V around the time of the Bismarck episode. I used the White Ensign PE set, but a very large part of it was radars that were put on after this. A set of PE rails was also used. Stretched clear sprue was used for rigging.

Lovely example Roy. I like the idea of using stretched sprue for rigging.
I have just added a Revell 1/570 KG V to my stash. I hope that I can do a job like this with it.

Here is mine, just finished. It came in a Frog/Airfix box with the code NF-4002 as HMS Prince of Wales, but the mouldings and instructions (with additions) are the Airfix KGV even down to the ship's name on the stern. This and the de-gaussing cable were removed and the UPs changed for 2pdr pom-poms :wink:
