WOW! I can't believe no one has replied to this. Thank you for posting all this, good info. I am building a 1/200 model atm, although progressing slowly. Lots more good info at the HMS Hood Association website and over on ModelWarships.com especially EJ Foeth's build. Regards, Pete in RI

I attended a fascinating presentation given by William Sutherland a couple of weeks ago on this subject.  I suspect it was very similar to the one he presented on 21 May,  If you get a chance to watch the video, I would recommend it.
