1/200 Hood from Trumpeter!

Postby paulcadogan » Wed Dec 04, 2013 1:59 pm

Yes..for those BIG model enthusiasts (way out of my range)....

To complement their 1/200 Bismarck... Trumpeter will be releasing HOOD in 1/200 scale!

No timeline or release date yet though.

It was seen on a scanned page from what appears to be the latest Trumpeter catalogue. As you can see USS Iowa is also in the works to follow the recently released 1/200 Missouri:

There has been much discussion on the accuracy (or lack thereof!) of these big Trumpeter kits - especially with regards to the hulls of Bismarck and Missouri.

1/200....where do you put such a model in your house????

OK!!! At long last........Here are the test shots!!

Hmmm... looks like the hull plating is exaggerated as it is in the 1/350 version - at 1/200 it stands out even more....
