Description

HMS Zulu was a Tribal-class British destroyer, built in Glasgowby A. Stephens & Sons, her keel laid down on Aug 10th 1936 and launched on Sept 23rd 1937. She was launched with boilers and funnels in place, and this gave her the reputation of a lucky ship. Commissioned on 7th Sept 1938. Just after she was completed, the HMS Zulu moved in Mediterranean and was based inMalta. When she returned home, during 1941, she had a part in the hunt for the German battleshipBismarck. And in June 1941 Zulu sailed forFalmouth,Englandto begin her refit. Her after funnel was cut down and her mainmast was fitted with a high frequency direction finding (Huff-Duff or HF/DF) outfit. Two, single 2 pounder guns were mounted on the bridge wings. Radar was installed and the depth charge throwers were re-located. The refit was completed by July. Then she moved back in Mediterranean, where she performed strike attacks against Italian convoys, and later took part in the attack against the Italian base in Tobruk (Libya). Here HMS Zulu's luck turned. On September 14, 1942, she suffered some damages from the Italian coastal batteries on Tobruk coast. And just a few hours later, she was bombed by an Italian aircraft, the bomb exploded in the boiler room, and HMS Zulu couldn't move any more. HMS Croome took off the most part of HMS Zulu's crew, and HMS Hursley took her in tow. But the British destroyer was sinking: just a hundred miles fromAlexandria, again she was bombed by an enemy aircraft. HMS Zulu suddenly rolled to starboard and sank. 12 men of the crew died, and 27 more were missing.Item No 05332 Item Name HMS Zulu Destroyer 1941 Bar Code 9580208053325 Scale 1:350 Item Type Static Kit Model Brief Length: 328.3mm Beam:15.9 mm Total Parts 250+ Metal Parts n/a Photo Etched Parts 1 piece Film Parts n/a Resin Parts n/a Total Sprues 7 sprues and hul Released Date 2014-08 More Features " - the kit contains over 250 parts,includes a piece of photo etched parts - the hull made from two-directional slide molds - Contains display stand"
