HMS HOOD
« on: July 21, 2021, 11:54:39 am »

I'm looking for plans of HMS Hood in the 1920 to 1930 configuration. Does anybody have experience which are the best ones available? In particular the hull lines as she has a complex hull shape with the bulges and this needs to be perfect.


Thanks

I assume you have seen this list Geoff:

Sambrook Marine plans are of course available from Taubmann but the Taubman list only seems to mention 1932 post refit configuration.

I expect I'm telling you how to suck eggs here!

Hi Geoff


You may also be aware of these resources but I would suggest asking on the modelwarships forum 'Calling all HMS Hood fans' - over 50 pages of posts on Hood there, I think the experts who post on that board might be able to answer your question.


The Ship Model Forum View topic - Calling all HMS "Mighty" Hood fans (shipmodels.info)


Also there is an excellent blog by EJ Foeth dedicated to a long term Hood project in 1/350 - lots of very detailed information about the fittings, armament, boats in the older posts here (useful for any RN ships in this era really)

Hope this helps & good luck

For all matters to do with Hood this should be your first port of call:
