This kit should be very welcome and easily identifiable. Coming from a company that aggressively produces the over-looked or off the beaten track subjects, this won't be the last in this series. Can you identify the name of the ship, scale of model and name of manufacturer? As additional questions, what was the class nickname and why? Please post all answers to the message board. It took a Triumvirate of warship sleuths to answer all of the questions. Mike Wolfe identified it as HMS King Edward VII, Darius P. identified the "Wobbly Eight" nickname and Joel Labow identified the reason for the nickname, "ships of this class handled well but had difficulty steering a straight course, hence the appellation "Wobbly Eight."
