Description : Neptune made in germany RARE cast Detailed made in germany. 1 1250 Scale Diecast /Older cast. HMS Furious was a modified Courageous-class battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy (RN) during the First World War. Furious was modified as an aircraft carrier while under construction.Her forward turret was removed and a flight deck was added in its place, such that aircraft had to manoeuvre around the superstructure to land. Furious was briefly laid up after the war before she was reconstructed with a full-length flight deck in the early 1920s. After her conversion, Furious was used extensively for trials of naval aircraft and later as a training carrier once the new armoured carriers like Ark Royal entered service in the late 1930s. During the early months of the Second World War, the carrier spent her time hunting for German raiders in the North Atlantic and escorting convoys. The first of what would be numerous aircraft ferry missions was made by the carrier during the campaign. At first, Furious made several trips to West Africa, but she began to ferry aircraft to Gibraltar in 1941. An unsuccessful attack on German-occupied ports on the Arctic Ocean interrupted the ferry missions in mid-1941. Furious was given a lengthy refit in the United States and spent a few months training after her return in April 1942.
She made several more ferry trips in mid-1942 before her aircraft attacked airfields in Vichy French Algeria as part of the opening stages of Operation Torch in November 1942. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Transportation\Boats & Ships\Military\Models".
