Hi Team The Royal Navy took delivery of many LCI (L)s under lend lease LCI L 98 ws delivered in Nov 1942. There are good quality photos from IWM collections that are undated. From 1943, most RN Landing craft were painted White background with B30 or G10 camouflage etc The scheme is clearly very worn and it seems that LCI 98 was converted to a landing Craft headquarters in early 1944 It seems unlikely that the RN would have repainted the delivery scheme from Nov 1942, meaning that she likely retains US "delivery" colours. Does anyone have any idea as to what the most likely candidates are ? Superstructure ?Light Grey Hull - ?Ocean Grey Black Cat Models look likely to be doing this - so this research is prior to a likely build I'm grateful for any thoughts or insights. The system of wartime USN paint colours seem even more bewildering than the RN schemes Thanks in anticipation Rob
