I was entered GB with the ship once. This time I actually finished it! 😉 And it's British. Again. I swear, next time I build something Japanese or Russian! 😉
HMS Hermes, world's first ship to be designed as an aircraft carrier. The ship's construction began during the First World War and Finally commissioned in 1924.
Model represent how Hermes looks in her final assignment at Ceylon in 1942. Hermes was berthed in Trincomalee on 8 April when a warning of an Indian Ocean raid by the Japanese fleet was received, and she sailed that day for the Maldives with no aircraft on board. On 9 April a Japanese scout plane spotted her near Batticaloa, and she was attacked by several dozen dive bombers shortly afterwards. With no air cover, the carrier was quickly sunk by the Japanese aircraft. Most of the survivors were rescued by a nearby hospital ship, although 307 men from Hermes were lost in the sinking.

As for model itself - as always from Flyhawk - excellent fit and detail. I was very pleased how LifeColor paints worked too. It was long but nice build; hope you like this reveal. 😉

[3LiIIj3][Hka8xNF][j1YLx8X][aUEc1Tk]   [H6w7FUl]  [Ax5eRT6]  Hermes and Illustrious.

Ships are my favorite. Carriers in general.  They look cool with all this small details.
