I started these on Saturday, so not too bad really. May 1941 was a pretty dull month for ship colours, but an exciting month for action, but a tragic waste of lives.

Bismark in late May 1941 markings (she was repainted from her infamous dazzle scheme as she sortied, this is her Battle of Danemark Straights scheme, and before she was sunk she was in the middle of painting her turret tops yellow for air recognition)










The pride of the British fleet, and an awful loss, HMS Hood




HMS King George V and HMS Prince of Wales (1941 colours)






HMS Cossack and HMS Eskimo - Tribal Class Destroyers




WWI vintage, but refitted in the 1930s,  HMS Vega and HMS Wolsey, V&W Class Destroyers

Nice. I tend to base on flat blue card, find that any filler makes look like they are sinking.

That would be "Added realism" based on my limited adventures in Naval gaming.

Just to pick nits - the ship you have named as Prince of Wales is one ot the other KGV's, POW carreid her aircraft to the end - the others landed thiers and used the catapult space to stow boats.  Wink

It was what I got sent from Davco, looks like it's the post 43 AA refit, as their early KGV class, listed as Pow, was out of stock. Beggars can't be choosers...  Cool

Odd that- did visit the factory once - wanted Hood, out of stock so they spun up the caster and ran one off for me.
