A Brand New Ship Series Starts

The Washington Naval Treaty, signed by the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, France and Italy in 1922, declared the start of the Navy Holiday and also led to the birth of the Royal Navy Battleship H.M.S. Rodney.
H.M.S. Rodney was the second ship of the Nelson class battleships of the Royal Navy. Among British battleships in modern history, the Nelson class was the first to use a flush deck hull. Three triple 16-inch gun turrets were grouped together like a pyramid forward of the superstructure. Designed under the guidance of the “all or nothing” principle, the Nelson class battleships had the best armor protection among the battleships in the world. Rodney and another 6 battleships which had large caliber guns were called “Big Seven” during the Navy Holiday.
Designed based on the exclusive reference materials from the National Maritime Museum in the UK, MENG now offers the first product of the PS series, the PS-001 1/700 Royal Navy Battleship H.M.S. Rodney (29).
