I have been thouroughly convinced that my drawings of HMS Hood are up to snuff, so I'm posting them here, despite hording them for some time.
Here is the HMS Hood as commissioned in 1920:
HMS Hood as she appeared in 1924:
Her compass platform has been completely remodeled.
HMS Hood as she appeared in 1931:
HMS Hood had her first major rework done between 1929 and 1931. The compass platform and admirals bridge was further reworked and she recieved two octuple pom-pom mounts on her shelter deck amidships. For a short period she also trialed a fantail mounted catapult and crane.
HMS Hood as she appeared in 1937:
By 1937 her compass platform has been remodeled (again.) She is now serving in the Mediterranean Sea, hence the 507C paint scheme. She is sporting the Spanish Civil War-era neutraility colors on her A and B turrets. Her main mast has been shortened, and three octuple 40mm pom-poms have been added alongside a pair of quad 12,7mm Vickers AA mounts on the rear superstructure. An additional pair of 4 inch AA guns were added to the amidships.
HMS Hood as she appeared in early 1939:
In early 39 she would recieve four twin 4" DP mounts (the 5.5" guns on the shelter deck was replaced in 38 with a pair of 4" AA guns)
HMS Hood as she appeared in mid-late 1939:
In mid 39 all of the single purpose 4" AA guns were removed and the shelter deck mounted 5.5" gun was reinstalled.
HMS Hood as she appeared in 1940:
By 1940 the ship was back in the Atlantic sporting the 507A medium gray paint scheme. All of the 4 inch and 5,5 inch secondary guns have been removed, and the holes for the four foremosts guns have been closed of. 7 twin 4 inch guns of a more modern design replaced the old 4" guns, and five UP launchers were added. The 4 above water torpedo tubes were removed, although her two underwater tubes would remain.
HMS Hood as she appeared in 1941:
This is the Hood as she appeared after having recieved radars to help track, and target enemy ships. Otherwise she remained unchanged from her 1940 appearance, and she would remain so until she faced of with the Bismarck in the battle that would see her sinking with the loss of 1415 lives in may.
