Re: Trumpeter HMS Belfast Help
There is an accurate depiction of the design of HMS Belfast's 1942 camouflage scheme and colours on page 293 of Conrad Waters' book "British Town class cruisers". From what I can make out from on-line sources the Trumpeter design is a bit different.
After a recent trip to the UK and a visit to the HMS Belfast in London I purchased the Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Belfast kit. The kit is supposed to represent the ship in her 1942 fit and I intend to build it in that form. Knowing that Trumpeter cannot be trusted regarding these things can anyone familiar with the kit or the history of the ship advise whether 1) is the camo scheme shown in the instructions accurate and 2) are the color call outs correct? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
