  1. There is a longitudinal cut in both Campbell's Naval Weapons of WWII and Roberts' AOTS volume. Nothing in Lambert's vol I-III.
  2. Small comments Suggest reading the link below: See http://www.hmshood.com/hoodtoday/models/trumpeter/trumpeter200.htm - I have the tip of the guns (main & secondaries) in hull colour in 1940-1941; sometimes there's a bag at the end (main guns) that is a bit lighter. - HMS Hood's pompoms did not have conical flash suppressors - Missing shield outline of the UP launcher on B-turret - Missing double degaussing cable at bow and stern - Bridge level railing replaced by splinter shield - Position of all Carley floats not correct (for as sunk).
  3. Excellent work on my favourite subject!
  4. Indeed it is. Last vacation I read Eugene Rogan’s The Fall of the Ottomans where his exploits were detailed (a great read incidentally). The book linked above might be a bit too much for just some boat plans though.
  5. Here's a Sunderland with the RAF Air Sea Rescue launch / Seaplane tender https://www.model-dockyard.com/acatalog/model-boat-magazine-RAF_Launches.html Also found this link: http://www.castlehillpress.com/publications/2012_boats_for_the_raf_introduction.shtml T. E. Lawrence, Boats for the R.A.F. Of course, no where to be found but nice to learn it exists.
  6. Perhaps focus the Air Sea Rescue launch? Don't have much on those, but plenty pics around?
  7. There are a few nice pre-WWI volumes on boats and launches , but unfortunately I am not aware of any such book or site for the first half of the 20th century. John Lambert was your typical resource for these drawings and these drawings are now all managed by Seaforth Publishing. I wrote to them asking if there are going to be published but this is currently not planned (Hope they change their mind, the first three volumes with his work are simply wonderful). Not only did he have a number of these small vessels drawn out, Mr Lambert also had a large archive with many more drawings that he would
  8. Ok, more seriously... asking for a friend.... which British Army colours from your list are WWII (1943 at the latest)? Modern/gulf are out I suppose...
  9. In my experience they listen very well.
  10. Sources: https://imechearchive.wordpress.com/2016/05/23/paravanes/ http://engineersatwar.imeche.org/defence I noticed that the Mk IV is a bit longer than the Mk V.
  11. The answer to that question is always: yes. Very nice to see white-glued paper doing so well, and it maintains the clinker-built hull
  12. Most doubtful as then there would be a full, trained crew to fight the fire, plus, the fire suppression system would not have been deactivated.
  13. I like Hobb's books so much I would almost build a carrier next... very interesting to read how far the RN was at the end of WWI with a carrier strike force.
  14. Thanks, I see your point! Hydrodynamically they are... in the way... I guess they did their research and that there is no cavitation hindrance from the anodes? And that hub cap is also a form of vortex diffusor.
