HMS Hood was a British battlecruiser of the interwar period and World War II. Launched in 1918, she was commissioned two years later. It measured as much as 860 feet in length. The main artillery armament of the cruiser was eight BL Mk I 15 inch guns. In the interwar period, the cruiser, as the largest ship in the world, was a showcase of the Royal Navy. After the outbreak of World War II and the defeat of France, she was transferred to Gibraltar, where she joined Force H. On 21 May 1941, accompanied by the battleship Prince of Wales, she sailed on her last voyage. Three days later, the British ships clashed in the Danish Strait with the German battleship Bismarck and the accompanying heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen. After a short artillery duel at a long distance, the accurate shell caused an internal explosion in the stern part of the "Hood", which completely destroyed the ship. Out of the crew of 1418 people, only three sailors were rescued. The sinking of the Hood caused a shock in Great Britain.

HMS Hood has been prepared in a scale of 1:300 and faithfully reflects the details of its historical prototype. The brick battleship is 88 cm / 34.6" long and 22 cm / 8.7" high. It has many moving elements, such as deck guns, rotating artillery towers, rudders or propellers. The model has been covered with high-quality prints imitating equipment and camouflage. Prints do not wear off even during intensive use. The set includes a black brick display stand and a black, laser-engraved plate with the printed name and scale of the model.
