Invincible Deck Markings


Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

I'm making a start on the Revell 1/700 HMS Invincible. It's a lovely kit (Dragon originally I believe) but I really don't like the raised detail on the flight deck. Does anyone know of any decals to replace them, or have any tips for a 1/700 ship novice for putting the markings on?

Hi Gareth,


If you check this website http://www.seaforces.org/marint/Royal-Navy/Aircraft-Carrier/R-05-HMS-Invincible.htm it'll give you loads of details of HMS Invincible, and when you're on the website, if you scroll well down, you'll find a complete plan of the flight deck, it also gives you 2 options of Invincible from either 1980 or just before she was scrapped in 2005


Hope it helps

Hello Gareth,


this is a copy of the formal plan of the flight deck during the carrier's first commission in 1981. 


The markings would have been the same for the deployment to the Falklands; however, the helo circles had been removed by then. 





This plan was held in HQ1 and depicted the fire and access points for any emergencies.


A good modelling source is Phil Reeder's build on ModelWarships.

corrected info on the helo circles.

Thanks all. Looks like I'l have to get the masking tape out!

Try Fox Model Transfers, they have coach lining white strips and rounded corner decals. I used these for my mode of Invincible.
