Historical information

HMS King George V was the lead ship of the five British King George V-class battleships of the Royal Navy. Laid down in 1937 and commissioned in 1940, King George V operated during the Second World War as part of the British Home and Pacific Fleets.

In May 1941, along with HMS Rodney, King George V was involved in the hunt for and pursuit of the German battleship Bismarck, eventually inflicting severe damage which led to the German vessel sinking. On 1 May 1942 destroyer HMS Punjabi sank after a collision with King George V in foggy conditions. King George V took part in Operation Husky (the allied landings in Sicily) and bombarded the island of Levanzo and the port of Trapani. She also escorted part of the surrendered Italian Fleet, which included the battleships Andrea Doria and Caio Duilio, to Malta. In 1945 King George V took part in operations against the Japanese in the Pacific.

Following the war, King George V spent three years as the flagship of the British Home Fleet, was placed in reserve in 1949, and scrapped eight years later.

Модель сделана очень реалистично.
Детали передают боевое состояние линкора, вплоть до ржавчины и коррозии бортовой линии и днища..
Создается впечатление о бывалом судне, а не о линкоре, только что спущенном со стапеля.
Все что нужно - это клей, картон, умелые руки и желание добиться результата. Халинский как всегда на высоте..

Уже заказал его, жду недождусь посылки. Будет чем заняться вместе с сыном..
