This deck set from Wood Hunter is for the Trumpeter 1/700 HMS Hood in her 1931 configuration.

The light-color wood decks are approximately .008"/.2mm thick, with regular planks and other deck details laser etched into the woodm and an adhesive applied to the back. A light tracing with a hobby knife is all that is necessary to free the parts.


The small fret of brass, relief-etched photoetch has 7 different types of parts:

  • Three styles of hose and cable Reels
  • Fairleads
  • Anchor plates for the forecastle.

The set also includes a length of copper anchor chain.


A single page of simple instructions are included, with overhead pictures showing the decks affixed to the respective plastic decks.


These decks and photoetch are of the highest quality, and are appear to be great value for the price!

Thanks to FlyHawk Models for the review sample. It is listed as #W70056 HMS Hood (1931) with an MSRP of $13.95.
