A Model of HMS Vanguard
I have great pleasure in showing photographs etc of a model of HMS Vanguard constructed by a friend of mine. He is Mr Ken Winter of Southampton and I am sure all model enthusiasts will appreciate the care and detail Mr Winter has put into the construction of his model. Details are as follows:-

Length     6ft 6in.  (2metres)

Width       1ft 0in   (30cm)

Build time  3 years

The 15 inch guns turn electronically and have the sound of the guns firing.

An electronic sound of a Parsons Steam Turbine is fitted.

A smoke machine is also fitted.

The model is radio controlled for passage on the water.
