RL Hood color scheme
« on: August 27, 2019, 10:17:11 pm »
So, most honourable gents, I have the opportunity to obtain the Tamiya1/700 model of the Hood, does anybody know the color scheme she had when she was sunk by the Bismarck? If I'm able to get it, I would like to make her as she was before she was sunk. Or I could maybe have it become a Admiral-class Whiff, the HMS Fisher (52). I've already got a backstory lined up. But point being, I could use some references for RN camouflage and exact colors used during WW2, thanks!

AFAIK, the HMS Hood carried a simple, all light-grey livery (AFAIK the tone was actually called "Light Grey", a.k.a. "Foreign Stations Grey", plus red underwater with black demarcation line, wooden deck), while some other battle cruisers of the time carried more elaborate camouflage schemes.
