HMS Rodney was one of the most famous British battleships in WW2 and was named after the Admiral Lord Rodney. HMS Rodney and HMS Nelson had all their main guns concentrated forward in order to shorten the area of heavy armour, enabling them to have heavier armour where it was most needed, whilst keeping the weight within treaty limits. HMS Rodney's most famous action was against the German Battleship Bismarck, where along with the new battleship HMS King George V, she reduced the German ship to a floating wreck. Rodney was also active supporting the D-day landings and the Normandy campaign, using her 16 inch guns against German positions.
This model is Meng's first warship model in 1/700. Meng have gone for an unusual approach with this kit as it's an 'easy build' kit. This means the part count is lower the most ship models and construction much simpler, ideal for a novice or younger modeller. There is however, plenty of detail and it has the potential to be made into a good model by someone with more experience. The kit comes with pre-coloured parts but would look better if painted like any other model, it also comes with the option of building as a waterline or full hull model. As with most models, the builder will need to supply glue, paints and other modelling equipment as the kit doesn't include those.
