Hello, I would like to hear your opinion on one of the most beautiful camouflages of the Second World War - the battleship HMS Queen Elizabeth 1941 This is how it looks in an illustration from the book Les Brown And this is how Alen Raven The question is not even about the shape of the paterns - it certainly needs to be clarified. I find the range of colors offered by Les Brown rather strange. Isn't it logical to assume the standard MS1-MS2-MS3-507C set for that time? The color white seems especially strange to me. Take a look at this photo: you can clearly see the white waterline mark on a “white” background. In short, I will be very glad to all well-reasoned opinions on this matter. Especially interesting is the opinion by @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies
According to UK Defence Journal 820 NAS with their Merlin 2s will be the first air component to operate from HMS Queen Elisabeth when she leaves Rosyth next year. A major milestone although no doubt the press will have a field day moaning about her being a ship with no aeroplanes. Personally I'm looking forward to seeing the ship at sea and operating aircraft. In fact I think I'll try and get to Pompey to see her arrive in her home port for the first time.
