You can have a look at it right here:

http://www.primeportal.net/models/thomas_voigt/trumpeter_1-350_hms_hood/

It looks... well.... like HMS Hood, but I'm not leaping into orbit out of joy...

Anyway, I have my own 1/350 HMS Hood to worry about. Well, at least I can give you a few tips on the Trumpeter. What's correct and what isn't

Matthias, the Dutchman is also a doctoral candidate of ship hydrodynamics! That is impossible to top!

The people at Trumpeter say that tomorrow they´ll release the HMS Hood. Let´s wait until then.

I've been told. . .

Postby FW_Allen » Thu Apr 06, 2006 9:51 pm

. . .that the kit is expected to be to distributors later this month (near the end of the month). At least that is when my copies are to arrive. I suspect that if there are no serious delays, that we should have our kits in May. I plan on taking mine to the Hood reunion to show it to the vets...I'll be sure to let you know what comments they have.

Frank: Looks like they are shipping around Cape Horn past the Falklands to New Orleans. :stubborn: The folks who are offering it on Ebay must be going nuts.

Well, anyone can have a nice webpage, but is the HMS Hood really deliverable at a moments notice, or just for sale in the distant future. :angel:

Hi Warshipbuilder, I have just noticed you hail from near my old stamping ground. I was born and raised in Alfreton, now residing in Rotherham.

Well met, sirrah.
