This shows the battleship in it's last moments May 24, 1941. She is flying the signal 'turn by blue pendant' which was made as she and Prince of Wales began their turn to port to engage all their main armament. The 4-gun final salvo from Bismarck is falling around her. The kit is Tamiya's 1/700. The photo-etch is Gold Medal Models. The paint schemes are darkened from the kit suggestions to give the impression of the time - daybreak.
