This monitor design was one of the worst designs ever inflicted upon the USN, as the engine crew consistently had to work in heat exceeding 120 degree (F) and that was only one of the bad qualities of the class. However, the very things that made it an unsuccessful design for the USN add appeal to the modeler to build this ugly duckling.

She was wearing this scheme when she was lost in the China Sea. Dave Lockhart has built the Tamiya 1:350 scale kit of HMS Prince of Wales to reflect her appearance at the end of 1941.
