    From the archives, my collection of WWII Ship models made by Tamiya. Sadly they suffered some damage in the last move as did many tank models.
    Photo 1 has the fast battleships that entered service after WWII began, or close to that.
    Left to right is Alabama, South Dakota, Washington and New Jersey. All fine ships that were greatly underrated. Unlike aircraft carriers they could fight at night and kamikaze planes were swept overboard and the burn mark painted over.
    Photo #2 is US carriers. I believe Essex is in front then Lexington, after that is Hornet covered with B-25s taking off for the Doolittle raid. Then the battleships again.
    British ships in photo #3. There is a destroyer, then a cruiser, followed by Ark Royal, King George V and Rodney. After that are Japanese ships.
    If I recall correctly in photo #4 is battleship Haruna, hybrid battleship/carrier Ise, a Japanese aircraft carrier and then the dreaded Bismarck the most overrated ship of WWII. Contrary to popular belief it was not the most powerful battleship at the time. The US Colorado ships out gunned it and the Rodney had 9 16" guns vs the 8 15" guns of the Bismarck.
