Recommended to help build the King George V class battleship HMS Duke of York during her British Pacific Fleet service in 1945 from:
- Mini Hobby Models 1/350 scale HMS King George V
- Tamiya 1/350 scale HMS King George V
- and more!
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.
These model funnels are intended to help convert your HMS King George V model kit to sistership HMS Duke of York as she appeared after her 1944-45 refit during her British Pacific Fleet service.
