The handsome ships of the UK's World War II-era King George V class are  among the last Royal Navy battleships.  All had terrific service records.  HMS Duke of York is best remembered for her part in the sinking of the German battleship Scharnhorst in December, 1943 off the northern coast of Norway.  Like many warships, each ship of the class is slightly different in appearance. 

This model features the extended searchlight platform that provided a firing position for an additional twin-20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannon. This part is needed to convert your model to HMS Duke of York as she appeared after her 1944-45 refit during her British Pacific Fleet service.


The model does not include the funnel cap.  Please use your plastic kit's funnel cap part.



  • proper asymmetrical shape when viewed from above
  • integrated, open venturi (wind deflector)
  • extensive rivet detail
  • detailed underside trunking and supporting structures with lightening holes


Depending on which model kit you have, some adjustment to your plastic kit's parts may be needed for best fit.
