HMS Thunderer was the third Orion class battleship, one of the Super Dreadnoughts built to counter German naval expansion in April 1910. At 22,200 tons she was the largest ship ever built on the Thames and bankrupted her builders. The author s 1/96-scale museum-quality model reflects the massive engineering of the prototype and brings to life the power and potency of the Super Dreadnoughts. Also covered is the battleship USS Texas, the only remaining ship of that class from the same era.
