Graupner HMS Hood Premium Line Model

Graupner HMS Hood Premium Line Model

An accurate scale model of the Royal Navy's battle cruiser of 1918. The Admiral class ships were developed during the First World War to counter the threat of the German Mackensen classes, but only HMS Hood was completed. The vessel was commissioned in 1920, while her three sister ships were cancelled and broken up.
The ship was named after Admiral Samuel Hood, first Viscount Hood (1724 - 1816)
The Battle of Skagerrak showed that battle cruisers were vulnerable to steeply angled artillery fire, but construction of the Hood continued despite this discouraging experience, even though the idea of developing a completely new design with improved armour was under consideration at the time.
In the 1920's the ship became a national monument in Great Britain after gaining world-wide fame by completing a circumnavigation of the globe.
In 1941 the Hood, together with the Prince of Wales, took part in the hunt for the Bismarck (accompanied by the Prinz Eugen). During this action the ship came under devastating steep-angle fire from the Bismarck, which succeeded in gaining a hit in the main magazine. The gigantic resultantexplosion split the Hood in two, and the wreck sank in just two minutes; there were only three survivors.
The Prince of Wales was subsequently forced to break off the fight and turn away after suffering severe damage from artillery.
