Re: Trumpeter HMS Belfast Help
For detail concerning HMS Belfast colours, as in 1942, I recommend you view the Sovereign Hobbies website.
View their main site and you will find, on the left of the screen, a column titled "By Ship" and the second on the list is HMS Belfast 1942. This provides you with the colours you require.
If you are not aware Sovereign Hobbies produce the Colourcoats range of paints, that in a previous life came under the White Ensign name.
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.
