The model is
an H-P Models 1/700 scale HMS
Trafalgar. In the past year I bought
a H-P Models HMS St. James
kit from Pacific Front Hobbies and I decided to complete it
as the HMS Trafalgar.
In my opinion I
believe that is one of the best kit from H-P Models. Unfortunately, the kit does
not come with photo-etch. However, in order to add some details to the model, I
used a Tribal
set from White Ensign Models.
For the model
painting , I used WEM colours for the hull and all the vertical surfaces
(Modern RN light weatherwork gray) and green for the decks (Humbrol 88); the
color of all the rafts are the same as the ship sides i.e. light gray.
I have plans to use
this model an similar ones to build a diorama of the British
7th Destroyer Squadron.
