PRIDE OF THE ROYAL NAVY

f ever a kit deserved the moniker ‘Vintage Classic’ it’s Airfix’s HMS Hood, which is now 60 years old – despite this, the moulds have aged well and there was relatively little flash on the parts in AMW’s sample.

AMPHIBIOUS ASSAULT

Being one of Airfix’s later offerings of this type, components on the three styrene runners feature restrained, yet well-defined detail, notably on the decking and life rings, although several heavy seams will require cleaning up prior to assembly.

LONG-LIVED CRUISER

Arguably one of Airfix’s most detailed 1/600 ship kits, its HMS Belfast is presented on four ‘open-style’ styrene runners, plus vertically split hull halves and individual main and upper deck sections.
