Navis Neptun 1144 HMS Penelope a light cruiser that served in WW2 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale secondhand model of HMS Penelope by Navis Neptun 1144. This secondhand model is in very good condition, see photograph.
Built as a small, economy design to replace the aging WW1 "C-class", the Arethusa class were too cramped for the designed tasks but the hulls were developed into the Dido class AA cruisers.
When being repaired at Malta Dockyard, Penelope received so much splinter damage during the air raids that she was referred to as HMS Pepperpot!
