Flyhawk Models of Hood
Our experts are working with Flyhawk Models of China in an effort to produce the most accurate small scale (1/700 scale) models of Hood ever created. Flyhawk currently are looking to produce two versions of the kit, 1924 and as-lost (1941). There have been some decent commercial models of the ship in the past, but these new kits will be decidedly superior as they are based on many new finds (or rather, "rediscoveries") pertaining to Hood's configuration and they will be taking advantage of upgrades in the field of injection moulding. We do not know when the kits are expected to reach production (or if both kits will indeed be released), but rest assured that we will be helping to ensure details are accurate.

Photo Database Developments Continue
We're still exploring ways to make our extensive photograph collections more accessible to the public. This involves the development/creation/deployment of a searchable database. Please advised this will take some time as we have an all-volunteer website staff.
