un identified model on ebay
« on: April 01, 2009, 09:37:30 AM »

Item number: 140311472966
Titled on Ebay as VINTAGE MODEL DESTROYER

Does anyone recognise this ship from the photos in fleebay or is it a "nonsuch" with bits such as "Hood" and "Warspite" etc all mixed up.

Certainly looks interesting.

This looks very much like the Bassett-Lowke HMS Hood or Repulse to me! I have an old catalogue of theirs from the 1930s, and the hull shape (complete with inaccurate "ram bow" looks very similar. The subject is definitely meant to be Hood or Repulse (looks like Hood to me but not 100% certain) though the hull shape is not very accurate.
