I have an Airfix Bismarck that has been converted to an H-class battleship from the Z-plan using two kits. For some years I have been working on converting HMS Hood to the proposed sisters using drawings from one of the Warship annuals but I keep putting it aside for more urgent projects. Suffolk can be converted to Cumberland by changing the secondary & AA armament but also as Cumberland as a post-war trials cruiser. Prinz Eugen can be converted to Blucher, Hipper, Seydlitz, Lutzow and even to the light cruiser version and the aircraft carrier Weser. Finally, the Tribals can be as built with equal funnels or as modified with $2 AA in X-position or Australian & Canadian versions, camouflaged or post war or even full hull (which they are almost in the unbuilt kits.
