Delightful

Such a lovely kit to do, it was my first ship I had made but i found the instructions easy to follow and the kit came together with little problems. Although some bits were not cast properly it was easy to correct with a craft knife, but overall would highly recommend this kit to a more experienced 'modeler'.

HMS Hood

This was my first ship build i have done however I have done a number or vehicles and aircraft over the years. I second the above comment this build is not for beginners. It's a good kit considering its based on the original 1960s kit design. Their are subtle errors due to the age of the kit design however a lot of these can be easily rectified by going on the internet to get the correct paint colours. This is as usual a high quality airfix kit especially as the original kit for this is over 50 years old

HMS Hood

When I first bought this kit, it looked really nice. When I opened the box, it looked even nicer. Then, once I had finished the build, I knew that it wasn’t for beginners. It was a fantastic build, but not for someone who’s only just started. Lovely kit overall. Well done Airfix!
