Greetings from not so sunny Devon.  Just started modelling again after a break of 45ish years (isn’t retirement wonderful!) having just completed a Revell Lancaster that had been languishing in its box for 4 years I’m now just starting a Trumpeter HMS Exeter, struggling with some of the colours so will be needing some advice!

well, you are in  luck, as we have as a member @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies  who has done the research and sells the paint made to match that research...

note link to the research. 

The paints are enamels,  which as a returnee probably won't be a problem.

 

and welcome to the forums, one of the best model forums online, with an exceptional knowledge base (eg see above...)

Hello Ewen... :post1: from Chicago. Troy has already pointed you out to Jamie so i can skip that. Jamie is really one of the best I've come across for that research and information.

Hi Ewen,

 

I'll be happy to help on colour advice when you're ready.

 

I have a build thread on the go presently for Exeter here 

... and there has been a short thread discussing the colours worn during the Battle of the River Plate here:

 

Welcome to Britmodeller :D

Thanks to everyone who replied to my original query on HMS Exeter colours, Jamie at Sovereign has put me on the right track, just itching to get going once the paint arrives!
