The special turret was removed in June 1943 during a refit at Rosyth to turn her into a training ship...see above reply to Kevin on my intention re the quiz.
As I recall, the special enclosed turret shown on the British cruiser DIOMEDE had been removed long before the war and application of the disruptive camouflage design. So what ship is intended?
Dutch cruiser JAVA (model by STAR 1/1250) and British cruiser DIOMEDE (looks like a scratch-built model). I have no idea of the historical relationship of the two! Must have been in European waters.
These two ended up together. Identify the place/circumstances, the ships, and the models. [Note: some are represented by near sisters...sort of.]
