How about HMS Effingham and HMS Curacoa both sunk by accident during WW2. The latter looks like the Argonaut model and I guess that the former might also be by Argonaut. At the time of sinking, Curacoa is said to have carried a camouflage pattern that incorporated Mountbatten Pink and Effingham was light grey when photographed by a Norwegian camerman, not dark grey as modelled by both Argonaut and Neptun.
Good answer, but the reason why the C-Class CLAA is customized and camouflaged is that it is modified to represent a particular ship, which is not Curlew...
Looks like HMS Effingham and HMS Curlew, both lost off Norway in May 1940 - the former by grounding and the latter by German bombers. Probably both Neptun models - nice camo on the latter.
Name the relationship between these two ships, the ships, and the models.
