Navis WW1 models did not have quite the standard of detailing found on the newer Neptun range. However, models designated with an N are of later production and finer. Nonetheless the range is the best of its type!

A 1/1250 scale metal model, Navis's usual good representation of this famous British battleship that was launched just in time for WWI, as lead ship of the Revenge class battleships (often mis-labeled as the Royal Sovereign class). It consisted of 5 super-dreadnoughts, the HMS Revenge, Ramillies, Resolution, Royal Oak, and Royal Sovereign. These ships were built at a cost of £2.5 million, could travel at 22 knots, were 187 metres long, and held a crew of almost a thousand. The displacement was 31,500 tons, and they had 8 15 inch guns, 14 6 inch guns, a pair of 3 inch guns, and four torpedo tubes. A lot of firepower! HMS Revenge fought at Jutland without being hit and had no casualties. During this battle, she temporarily became the flagship of a vice admiral after his ship, HMS Marlborough was torpedoed. Revenge survived the war, and went on to play a limited role, mostly trans-Atlantic convoy escorts, during WW2. Scrapped in 1948, after surviving two world wars, she would have been a fine example of a battleship to preserve.

Originally designed as a "Large Light Cruiser" to attack German interests in the Baltic sea, during WW1, Furious was equipped, from the start of her long naval career, with an aircraft flying-off deck in place of the forward 18" gun turret. By 1918, as modelled, a second landing on deck had been added in place of the aft turret. In this form Furious's aircraft raided the Zepplin sheds at Tondern. As turbulence from the funnel affected the handling of aircraft, when landing the ship was converted to a flush decked aircraft carrier and later served in WW2 and survived to be scrapped in 1948. A fine old lady!

HMS Furious underwent several major revamps during her career, having been started during World War 1 as a a Courageous-class cruiser but was modified to an aircraft carrier while under construction. Navis' s release for 2011 depicts the ship in completed form with the forward turret removed and a flight deck added in its place, aircraft had to manoeuvre around the superstructure to land. Later in the war the ship had the rear 18" turret removed and a second flight deck installed aft of the superstructure, but this was less than satisfactory due to air turbulence. Furious was briefly laid up after the war before she was reconstructed with a full-length flight deck in the early 1920s. An excellent model.

Sister ship Glorious differed in  the position of the searchlight platforms around the funnel.
 
Part of First Sea Lord Jack Fisher's never to used plan to invade the north coast of Germany as a means to relieve pressure on the Western front, these shallow-draft big gun giants were considered white elephants until converted to aircraft carriers. Even then they were misused and Courageous was torpedoed and sunk whilst hunting submarines in October 1939.

The 18" gun was to be sent to sea in HMS Furious but when she was converted to an aircraft carrier, the 18" guns were fitted in the 12" monitors to gain more experience with the weapons in service. There was no room for a revolving turret & the guns were mounted in a shield facing to starboard. General Wolfe saw most action in this form and took part in operations off Zeebrugge in 1917 & 18.

Queen Mary should have been the most effective Battlecruiser at Jutland, having improved fire control and a reputation for the best drilled gun crews. Indeed, the Germans reported that she was firing salvos more rapidly than the rest of the squadron. The downside was that the turret crews were ignoring anti-flash, safety rules and stockpiling shells and charges in the barbettes, and when the armour was penetrated, the stockpiled charges ignited the magazines.....

Approximately 17.30 31st May 1916 Queen Mary exploded and broke in two as the battle roared on to the south. Only eight survived from a complement of 57 officers and 1209 men.

HMS Hood was the lead ship of a class of 4 battlecruisers. After the Battle of Jutland, Hood was re-designed to include more armour but the result was not entirely satisfactory and design work continued on the three sisters. At the end of WW1, the sisterships were cancelled and plans were prepared for the G3 Battlecruisers (see Neptun 1108) but they too were cancelled following the 1922 Washington Treaty. Hood remained the sole example and the last British battlecruiser to be built.
