"After the 1924 amendment to the Washington Treaty that allowed each nation to build one, and in the case of Great Britain, a 3rd treaty battleship prior to 1930, The British took the opportunity to revisit the Nelson design. Already there were doubts about the all-forward concept. Willing to delay the construction of the 3rd ship to allow a redesign, HMS Collingwood was built to a more conventional layout.

1/700 BTW.





Beauty shot showing three cousins. Both the Collingwood and Inflexible are Tamiya 1/700 kits with scratchbuilt hulls.

Nice work.

Beautiful models! Would the Collingwood design fit within the 35,000 ton treaty limitations?

That was the intent, maybe +1000 tons to allow for a longer Citadel. Otherwise, Just a more logical Nelson.
