To Airfix themselves I think that all ships should be available in 1/600 scale as it would be nice to have a full fleet of the same scale as the type 45 is only available in 1/350 but most other ships are 1/600.

it would also be nice to have the HMS Queen Elizabeth/Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier.

Alternatively you could make All ships available in 1/350 scale

Well, the recent "Airfix Classics" releases led to my realising that the one paricipant in the Battle of Denmark Strait that Airfix have never tooled is HMS Prince of Wales.

Isn't PoW identical to KGV - Frog sold KGV as PoW

You can still find the KGV around.  Armed with a set of plans I see no reason why one can't built the PoW to 1:600.

KGV and POW are the same class sure, but it's rare for 2 battleships to not differ in detail.

Well I did have to sand off the nameplate and the degausing cable.

That's why I said "Armed with a set of plans ..."
