It cost £40 - cheaper than all currently available QE models. You can judge from the images here whether you think it's worth the money!
From above, the plan view is not too inaccurate, but when other aspects of the model are examined its shortcomings are obvious.
The islands are both incorrectly configured and are too small.The freeboard looks ok, but the beam is approx 4mm too narrow with consequential inaccuracies in the sponsons and galleries.The bow shape is wrong and the ski jump is far to short and abrupt.
The way the model is built is novel - bolted together and glued. The flight deck will require a substantial amount of work to get it flat to enable the vinyl (I think) flight deck sticker to be applied.
If you're looking for a display model QE this isn't it. If you want a QE for gaming, and are happy to put in the work, this might be ok.
