HMS Hood May 1941 
by Jan Varga 

1/350 HMS Hood (Trumpeter)

This is my 2nd attempt (1st was 1/400 Heller + WEM photoetch) on modeling this beautiful ship in state from May 1941. I used Trumpeter 1/350 + Lion Roar + Eduard photoetched sets + little modified resin bridge optics set originally dedicated for IJN ships from Voyager. As a reference I used plans available on hobby marked and excellent site of Mr. E.J. Foeth.

But the most helpful source of information was an excellent article on improving of HMS Hood kit published on official HMS Hood website. I think I managed to apply nearly all suggested improvements. Some of them are not 100% fine due to my still limited modelling skills. Buildlog written in Slovak/Czech language can be found on this link.
