HMS Prince of Wales - Part 2

Starting with the project this week, I thought I became crazy. I thought that if  HMS Prince of Wales is on the box, a HMS Prince of Wales is in the box there. Far from it! It seems to me, that in the miniship series from Revell the only difference between the ships of the King George V class is the name and the box art. The sprues are the same. So I started searching for pictures of the Prince of Wales and models of this ship. There are many pictures availiable, but less of them show me the details I want to see. Maybe I used the wrong search terms. However, I take the decision to change some parts of the model. I don't know whether the changes I make are historical correct or not. If you have some information or sources about the Prince of Wales I'm happy if you share the information or link with me. Thanks in advance!

HMS Prince of Wales - Part 1

Box Art
Decades ago, that I have built one of these small vessels. That was the time when Revell brought the Mini Ships in scale 1/1200 on the market. At that time I had built the entire series. Unfortunately, all the series are then gone broke during playing and relocations.
