Hi All,

 

Just finished this in the 'Year I was Born' GB and thought I'd put a couple of pics up here as well.

If your interested then the wip can be found here.

 

 

I'll be building the Dragon moulding of the same kit soon as I intended to build both in the GB but ran out of time... I'll be starting a wip for that soon.

Ah, so I was not seeing things! It is funny what you learn on this wonderful site!

 

This is a great result Geoff ( @Bugle07)

 

All the best,

It was an experimental anti-fouling paint that they tried out on her - and at the time it was only available in that rather lurid blue. As far as I know it was a success and subsequently adopted by the whole fleet, but the manufacturer produced a more RN-like colour!  Ark 5 Also had an unusual anti-fouling paint in her first year or so - a pale grey in her case.

 

Lovely job, anyway.

That has to be the best way to describe that shade, at least, the one the mods would let us post.

 

Thanks for the comments gents, must get the Dragon kit going at some point, see how much I can improve on this effort.
