Beleaguered British battleship
From her launch in January of 1941 to her sinking in December 1941, HMS Prince of Wales never caught a break. Very shortly after her launch she was engaged in the failed attack on the German Battleship Bismarck. After being repaired she was sent around the horn of Africa to help protect Singapore, was caught without air cover, and sunk by swarms of Japanese torpedo bombers. Through it all, her crew fought valiantly. They remained onboard until the abandon ship was ordered only five minutes before she sank. Kit features detailed aircraft catapult and full decals.
