Royal Navy

Royal Navy

The Royal Navy of Great Britain was still the world’s greatest navy at the outbreak of World War II, as might be expected from an island power with a far-flung empire. As a result of the Washington Treaty,  Britain went to war with mainly World War I-vintage vessels, plus those built in the post-war naval race subsequently curtailed by the treaty.

Not counting Commonwealth units, the Royal Navy deployed over 3,300 ships of all types during World War Two. Although badly stretched, the Royal Navy lived up to its traditional ‘can do!’ ethos, fighting hard in all theatres. The great fleet actions planned for and desired by the architects of the Royal Navy did not materialise during World War Two, but the Royal Navy adapted well to the war it was destined to fight, and emerged with great honour.

Cast in resin with metal 'details,' these models are 3D-designed to be extremely accurate 1/1800 scale representations of the fighting ships of World War II yet extremely easy for modeller's to work with. Supplied unpainted with integrated bases featuring realistic wakes, this range is being continually added to and will grow to become one of the most comprehensive available for the discerning model collector and gamer.
