Naiad made many trips escorting convoys keeping Malta supplied. This part was well packed and protected from damage as it is some really fine molding.
Upon ing the Home Fleet of the Royal Navy she was ased to convoy protection with the 15th Cruiser Squadron sailing up and down the Atlantic. Shortages caused other ships in the class to be built with only four turrets.
Naiad was among the ships trying to prevent the German battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau from breaking out into the Atlantic in May during Operation Midel. Click images.
She was one of the few completed with her intended armament of five 5"25 cal dual purpose twin guns turrets. FlyHawk has released this new kit, much to the delight of Royal Navy fans.
Let's take a look at what's in the box. In March she was torpedoed off Crete and sunk by the German submarine U losing 77 of her crew.
The kit depicts the Naiad as built, but with a little work could be modified to represent other ships in the Dido class.
