Poseidon model 1/700 British battle cruiser Renown 1917 resin kit is remodeled and remodeled to the state of the ship in 1920. Details have been improved using the etching parts included in the kit and general-purpose etching parts.
It was planned in the Battlecruiser additional construction plan during World War I. The main gun is a battle cruiser equipped with the same 15-inch gun as the Queen Elizabeth class and demonstrating 31.5 knots. The armor is thin in exchange for high speed power, and it is also thinner than the previous class Tiger and Lion class.
In 1920, he became a ship of Edward VIII, made several voyages, and visited Japan. The apparel maker “Renown” that existed in Japan is derived from this battle cruiser Renown. For reference, the men’s clothing brand “Durban” of the apparel maker “Renown” comes from the name of her companion when the battle cruiser Renown visited Japan.
However, this kit is in 1917 state. I noticed during the production that there was a considerable difference between 1917 and 1920 in the state of the ship, and there were many shortages of resin parts and etched parts, so I made extensive modifications.
The bridge structure is also different between 1917 and 1920, and in 1920 there is also a structure that seems to be a rangefinder at the top of the bridge. The searchlight equipment position is also different from 1917. Even in 1920, there were noticeable differences such as the presence or absence of structures in the center of the ship (probably the squash court and the projection room).
I used the following kit as a parts picker
Tamiya 1/700 Repulse (wide range of main gun, secondary armament, etc.)
Tamiya 1/700 Vampire (base of single secondary armament)
Fujimi 1/700 Suzuya (ventilation tower)
We used a general-purpose three-stage handrail and etching of a general-purpose tent support.
