Product: 1:700 Brit. King George V Battleship WL
The British battleship King George V entered service in October 1940 as the type ship of the second King George V-class and flagship of the Home Fleet. Among other things, she was involved in the hunt for the German battleship Bismarck in May 1941 together with the HMS Rodney. From 1944 the King George V served in the Pacific. For the surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945, she anchored off Tokyo. In 1949 the HMS King George V was transferred to the reserve fleet, and in 1957 the fleet command finally sent the 35,000-ton battleship into well-deserved retirement. The detailed TAMIYA model on a scale of 1: 700 shows the ship as it looked during the Pacific War with additional radar and anti-aircraft armament.
