Hello everyone, thought I would show this wartime instructional model of HMS Barham which met a dramatic end (along with most of her crew) in 1941. For those of you who havn't seen it, the ships final moments were caught on film and the extraordinary footage is well worth viewing. HMS Barham Explodes and Sinks, 1941 [Full Resolution] - YouTube
Considering how small this wooden model is, its beautifully made and detailed. I got it on ebay for just a few pounds. It is unnamed but having spent sometime examining contemporary pictures, it is certainly Barham rather than one of its Queen Elizabeth Class cousins due to unique details such as the placement of the aircraft catapult.
