A fantastic large scale replica of the famous aircraft carrier displayed at the International Model Boat Show 2018 which was hosted by Meridienne Exhibitions at the Warwickshire Event Centre. Built by Royal Navy veteran David Fortey over the course of 25 years, this incredible model was created by working from original builders plans direct from the MOD. It is 12.5 ft (3.8m) long and all measurements were converted to 1:72 scale from the original drawings. In total it weighs over 14 stone/90kg and is fully radio-controlled with working parts.
