Thanks that's a great help
That's just what I was looking for.
If this is the Aoshima boxing you are referring to https://www.scalemates.com/kits/aoshima-056707-hms-norfolk--1257118
then as originally applied in Autumn 1941 and well into 1942 the camouflage pattern included the upperworks. I have various photos dated from October 1941 to July 1942 showing this.
But by the winter of 1942-43 it seems to have been hull only as this photo shows: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205186328
Mike E has another much clearer photo showing the same.
I just picked up the Aoshima Norfolk (it's the 1942/43 version with the catapult) and the camo scheme is provided as decals. These are for the hull sides only but the box art shows camo on the superstructure, funnels and turrets. I assume this is correct but does anyone know if the camo was ever carried on the hull only as per the kit instructions? And if not, where I can get a plan of the full scheme?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
