Navis Neptun 100N HMS Revenge British WW1 Battleship (1916) 1/1250
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.
Navis only make one model of this class of battleship to represent these ships in WW1 although all five are made individually for their condition in WW2. To accuratelyrepresent individual ships in the 1916-1919 period, modellers could fit funnel screens or anti-torpedo bulges to this model or add dazzle paint schemes.
