These are a few photos of my kit-bash of the Trumpeter 1/350th scale Hood. I decided to convert the the kit to depict her as she appeared in 1938. This required at least 60 modifications to the 1941 version. Through-out, I used White Ensign Models 15" replacement turrets, WEM`s photo-etch set, and their 5.5" guns. I made a mistake in the order of colours on B turret, which has been corrected. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and I'm delighted with the finished model.
