Secondhand Mini-ships Anker An18 HMS Vindictive aircraft carrier 1918/19 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale secondhand model of HMS Vindictive an aircraft carrier in 1918/19 by Anker An18. This model is in very good original condition, see photograph.
Vindictive was being built as the lead ship of the Cavendish class cruisers when a running mate was required for HMS Furious which had just been converted to an aircraft carrier with flight decks fore and aft. Cavendish was also converted similarly and re-named Vindictive after the cruiser involved in the Zeebrugge and Ostend raids.
Vindictive was not a success as a carrier with all Furious's faults and worse because she was smaller. Nevertheless she did take part in one of the raids on the Zeppelin sheds in the autumn of 1918.
