1 144 King George V Class Battleship

1 144 King George V Class Battleship 3D print model

The Royal Navy’s HMS King George V was the lead ship of five King George V-class (KGV) battleships used during WWII. Her sister ships included the HMS Prince of Wales, HMS Duke of York, HMS Anson and HMS Howe. Her most notable action was the pursuit of Nazi Germany’s DKM Bismarck after it had sunk the HMS Hood and damaged the HMS Prince of Wales in the Battle of the Denmark Strait on May 24, 1941. The most notable characteristics of the KGV Class battle ships were the quad/dual forward turrets housing 14 inch guns, thick torpedo belt armor, aircraft cranes/catapult located amidships and crowded auxiliary boat stowage on the roof of the rear superstructure.

This KGV model represents her 1941 appearance when it pursued DKM Bismarck. Scale details include torpedo belts, rotating 14 and 5 inch gun turrets with elevating gun barrels, Supermarine Walrus scout biplane, aux boats, life rafts, aircraft cranes and 40mm anti aircraft guns. For RC operation, motor brackets for four 380 type Mabuchi brushed motors and a rudder servo mount are supplied.

Hull access is via removable fore and rear superstructures, partial deck section and rudder access panels.

Shorter hull sections are provided for 3d printers with Z (height) less than 200mm.

This model can be built as the HMS King George V or HMS Prince of Wales as they appeared in 1941.

The model dimensions are: 1577.4 mm x 237.4 mm x 405.4 mm.

Excellent stl files for an excellent model. Lots and lots of details. Great options included also for smaller or larger files,
Well done! Looking forword to printing this project.
It’s clear a lot of time and practical experience has gone into this kit. Parts are well thought out, requiring minimal support and are sensibly detailed for this scale, allowing even a modest printer to achieve good results. The step-by-step instructions are very clear, easy to follow with many annotated illustrations or photos. The model also lends itself to scaling up (as I am doing) or adding additional detail to what has already been provided. The cranes which are a prominent feature on this ship have the complex boom lattice modelled which is a nice touch. Also very much appreciated is the model of the seaplane which has been well done and really adds to the realism. One thing in the future that would be nice is to have an option of open hanger doors with a version of the seaplane with folded wings inside. As the ship was significantly modified throughout her career there is also the possibility of offering upgrade parts such as new radar, range finders, AA guns and the change to the seaplane area. All in a great model and very highly recommended to anyone wishing to push their printing skills a bit and be the envy of the boating club.
