1/700 British BattleShip Repulse

From the time of its building, the British Battle Cruiser Repulse was the one of the most beautiful warships made. During WWI, the light armored battle cruiser had high speed and an offensive ability and took a leading role in sea offensives. In August, 1916 the construction of the Repulse had been completed. After the Great War, the Repulses side armor and armaments were both strengthened and modernized. When WWII broke out, the Repulse actively participated in the chasing of the German battleship Bismarck. Later it was deployed to the Far East where tensions ran high with Japan. December 10, 1941 two days after the beginning of the Pacific War, together the Repulse and the new battleship the Prince of Wales, engaged the Malaysian invading Japanese forces. The battleship Repulse was later sunk by thunderous intensive Japanese aerial bombing attacks. It was said to have shocked the proud British Navy and British Prime Minister Churchill of the sinking of both capital ships Repulse and the Prince of Wales.
