HMS King George V
King George V Class Battleship. Formerly the Prince of Wales, this model recieved more than just a new name during the refit.
About this creation


Displacing 38,000 tons at standard load, these ships were armed with 10 BL 14-inch Mk VII guns in a unique arrangement of two quadruple turrets, A and Y, and a twin B turret.

































A couple of shots I thought might be useful to show the scale and internal structure of the ship's hull. As can be seen, most of the superstructure and the main battery removes on individual 'slabs' of deck to simplify construction.




A comparison between the Battleship and my light cruiser, HMS Belfast. They are to scale, with stands that place their waterline at the same height. The bow shots show how the KGV manages to weigh in at more than 3 times the weight of the CL despite being only slightly longer - damn tha's a lot of tonnage for a lady!

The images below show the ship as built, prior to minor modifications (aft DCT and mast area) and her major refit (boat deck, AA armament).

FANTABULOUS! so much detail, and the lines are so much to the real thing, the balance is very impressive! The top down shot of the KGV certainly shows that .... well done ... inspiring me to attempt a KGV in the 1/500 scale I'm working at ... Cheers!

No one cares about 'studless', as long as it leaves you speechless... And personally, I love the studs, they keep the bricks together :-), so there is no reason not to show them...

Very nice warship, though I think it would be far more nice in a studless design! :-)

This is a very cool model. While the Prince of Wales class is one of my less liked battleships, its still very kewl, and very well represented here. A+

Amazing 5/5, I wanted to build a battleship myself but didn't think I had enough pieces, but looking at yours I'm going to have a go. Just one piece of advice, when taking photos try and do it on a white background it will make your models stand out more, trust I know I made the same mistake to start with. keep up the good work,I want to see more like this :)

I had most of the pieces already (my huge Star Wars ships were sacrificed), but some of the red hull plates and bricks used for the smooth underside had to be ordered. Other rarer parts had to be shipped in specially. I tried to make her as detailed as possible, using Roger Chesneau's 'King George V Class Battleships', as my main source for designs and images. Thanks for all of your comments, guys! I had no idea the community would react so quickly!

Very beautiful model. I suppose you tried to use tiles to eliminate the studs in the sides, didnīt you? Anyway, the model is excellent.
