"First of my WW 1 and Pre-dreadnaught era ships"
mmegee616
Enjoyed building this one, even though has some PE parts, but not too many. Since the main turrets don't have a holding pin to set them up for swiveling, I just glued them in place so they would not fall off. Had some problem with the fit of the gun deck over the secondary guns though, but was able to overcome that small build. Painted the ship in a light ocean gray color and ended up attaching to a base for water effects, added smoke from funnels by using stuffing from a dog chew toy as the consistency was perfect and spray painted in a flat-lightly black and glued to funnel tops.

"Great kit of the originial 'Queen Elizabeth'"
cdnmodeller (Edmonton, AB)
The 'Queen Elizabeth' was 1 of a series of dreadnought-type battleships built in the early part of the 20th century for the Royal Navy. This kit depicts her as she looked at the end of World War 1. It was a remarkably easy kit to assemble; I was surprised at how well it came together. There are some extremely small parts but nothing a set of small tweezers can't handle. The only problem I had was when trying to handle some photo-etched parts; as I cut 1 piece loose from the mold it became bent quite easily and was rendered useless, despite my attempts to repair it. That 1 small problem did not spoil the kit as a whole though and I am quite happy with the result. Recommended for those building an Allied/Royal Navy collection.

 
"Historically attractive"
nathanfry07
Good historical example of a WW1 British super-dreadnought. This ship class defined battleship at the time with armament and speed. This model is a nice addition to any display fleet.

 
"Finally, a Styrene QE"
melvinburmaster (Prairieville, Louisiana)
Modelers of RN subjects long had only Airfix 1/600 or resin 1/700 kits which of course were high priced resin imports. Trumpeter continues in the line of base kits with the Queen Elizabeth class fast battleships which fill in a big spot for the RN battle line. (Although the Revenge Class still is getting shorted, seemingly far of for styrene.) Purists may check the dimensions but seriously, these kits are good and full of fiddly bits to make a worthwhile product. Advise getting these kits before price creep springs up on you, and with an eye toward Breyer or Dark Brown to give you details, you can achieve a particular kit (don't forget, QE had the aft 6 case mates lacking on the other members of the class.)

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
