Product Information

A Tamiya 1:700 scale model kit of the British Battleship HMS Prince of Wales as depicted during the Battle of Malaya.

The British Battleship Prince of Wales was the second ship of the King George V class.

Soon after her completion in March 1941, she was involved in the historic hunt for the German battleship Bismarck. In October she was deployed to South-East Asia to fortify the important British post of Singapore. However, her short career of a mere 9 months came to a dramatic end when intercepted by Japanese bombers in what was to be known as the Battle of Malaya.

Tamiya is proud to add the Prince of Wales as she stood during this historic naval battle to our high quality Water Line Series. Kit also features Japanese planes Type 96 "Nell" and Type 1 "Betty" attack bombers for a complete set to accurately recreate battle scene.
