HMAS Canberra - an interesting ship with photos of her somewhat rare. I can only think of one, and, at that, it is not easy to discern the precise detail of the AA armament.
Much more famous in the Far East than those Counties used elsewhere, and a larger market for ship kits anyway. On this logic look out for a Canberra.
Thanks for everyones' replies. If they're coming out with a Kent (I didn't know that, thank you!) then I'll likely wait for her. I have to say, Trumpeter's choices of which Counties to do are odd. I would have thought that more famous or unique ships like Norfolk, Suffolk and London (rebuilt) would be preferred. Cornwall wasn't that well known and due to her loss had a shorter wartime career, so I wonder what the sales numbers will be like.
Thank you again,
Just curious, and I know the information out there is scant, but... based upon the box art, is it likely that the upcoming Trumpy HMS Cornwall could be converted into another of her sub-class? I would like to build the Suffolk as during the Bismarck chase but these ships underwent a number of refits and there were differences, least of which was the cut away stern that several ships received. I believe that Suffolk was one.
Here's the box art: https://freetimehobbies.com/1-350-trumpeter-british-heavy-cruiser-hms-cornwall-preorder/
Many thanks for any pointers or ideas.
