There was that humorous article in PSM about the colors
Mountain Pink was difficult to find until someone came across a pack of cigarettes with a tiny bit of the correct color! hahahhaha
The Italian contribution was the best prepared. For Zara.
As for Hardbound, A volume,The Encyclopedia Of The World's Warships, by Crescent books had the main artwork spreads and summarized text. https://www.ebay.com/itm/233932489309?hash=item367776825d:g:tCEAAOSwtmVgUOY9
As said above, these are 40+ year old info.
The series has been criticized for inaccurate colours, suspect specs, "creative" drawings...
...but for the time, they were the best and still make a good, if not perfect, read-look-see, in this opinion.
'Have not seen the Vol 4 on HMS Belfast
As has sometimes been said by others here before me, Google is your friend. A quick search reveals that only three bound volumes were ever published. Contents per volume (in no particular order) are as follows:
Vol.1: HMS Illustrious pt.1 + 2; IJN Kongo; HMS Campbeltown; KM Prinz Eugen, HM MTB; HMS Dreadnought; HMS Cossack; USS Charles Ausburne; USS Hornet, KM Admiral Graf Spee; U-107.
Vol.2: IJN Yukikaze; HMS Furious; HMS Exeter; HMS Hood; USS Enterprise (CVAN-65); KM Bismarck; SMS Seydlitz; HM S/M Upholder; RN Zara; HMS Hesperus; USS Tennessee.
Vol.3: SMS Emden; SMS Torpedoboot B.110; USS Indianapolis; HMS Belfast; IJN Yamato & Musashi; FS Rubis.
How many bound volumes were published? Can anyone list the contents of each of those volumes?
