I am building the revel kit of Snowberry, but I would prefer not to use the 'western approaches' dazzle painting, but rather one with dark/medium/light grey as to me it looks better. Does any body have an illustration of a Flower class painted in such a colour scheme?

Hi Russell

A quick troll through google revealed the following

Or you could look at the Australian Bathurst Class ships as a few of these were finished in grey.

I went looking years ago and found lots of information, sadly, some of the sites seem to have changed or just vanished. If you get good info, store it on your own PC.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
