HBG Nevada Class Battleship

I was wondering whether to buy this sculpt in the British color. Does it resemble any British capital ship, perhaps the Renown-class battlecruisers?
It would be a decent stand-in for most WWI era battleships. The Revenge-class might be a better analog than Renown/Repulse. The Nevada shape is closer to Revenge (HMS Royal Oak below) since they were both battleships. As opposed to Renown which was a purpose built battlecruiser; longer and thinner for speed. Depending what you are having it represent, you may need to cut the aft mast off.
Also note that, as a weight-saving measure, battlecruisers sometimes carried fewer main gun turrets than battleships. British practice in the first two decades of the 20th century was to build battlecruiser counterparts to each battleship class, typically with fewer main guns, lighter armour, greater length and so forth.
