Airfix Catalogue description:

With a displacement of 9,550 tons and a maximum speed of 31.5 knots, H.M.S "Tiger" is the latest Royal Navy Cruiser. In this Airfix kit the 555 ft. length has been scaled to 11 1/2 inches and the 74 moulded parts go together precisely and easily to produce a detailed replica. Very different from the first "Tiger" of 1546 which fought the Armada, this ship is the 12th to bear the name. The "Tiger" has 4 radar-controlled guns for her main armament and her rate of fire is more than twice that of any present day Cruiser. - Taken from the 1st edition catalogue (1962)

13th edition catalogue (1976), listed as HMS 'Tiger' from H.M.S. Tiger.
