WDS WDS K Liz 0112T HMS Furious aircraft carrier in 1944 camouflage 1/1250
HMS Furious is a metal, waterline, 1/1250 scale model of the Royal Navy aircraft carrier in 1944. This model is made and painted in the 1944 camouflage by WDS in Germany. The Catalogue number is WDS K 0112T.
By 1944 HMS Furious was no longer able to support the American fighter planes that were being used by the Royal Navy and new aircraft carriers were emerging from the builders yards on both sides of the Atlantic. Furios was still being used as an aircraft transport, but this could be done more efficiently by using escort carriers in convoys of army logistics ships. Furious was withdrawn in 1944 and laid up and her crew went to the new operational carriers,
