Great review of an eagerly anticipated topic.

This is the only styrene related gift I'm expecting this Christmas but I'm really looking forward to completing the excellent series on the RN's battleships from RA Burt

As Darren noted, it was a sad end to the RN's association with line of battle ships as the Vanguard was broken up: to this day, I still wonder why the UK had not the foresight to preserve at least one of them!

PS. Scuttlebutt has it that Very Fire will be releasing a 1/350 kit of Vanguard at some point...
