Colin Vass's Scratch-built 1/200 Scale "1920" Hood
Updated 07-May-2014

The model shown here was built by Mr Colin Vass of the H.M.S. Hood Association. Colin is a true master model builder. He is renowned for his miniatures- a same scale 1941 Hood, as well as Bismarck and Prince of Wales are all on display at the Portsmouth Naval Museum's Lewin Gallery.

Colin also contributed two 1/400 scale models to Channel 4's 2001 expedition to locate and film Hood and Bismarck.
