HMS Indomitable 1/400

I just needed to rest from drawing, so I've begun to built again. My choice was waterline HMS Indomitable in 1/400 scale. It's my own drawing based on JSC's HMS Victorious model. Ship will be in version of famous "conwoy ride" Operation Pedestal in August 1942.

The camo on all 4 Illustrious class sister ships was a great challenge. While USN carriers are well-known and their camo regulations are wide published, Royal Navy is somewhat a great unknown. I've spent a lot of hours on internet searching thrustworthy informations, analyzing war photos etc. In the end I've chosen next camos ('cos I've prepared all four + 1 bonus):
- HMS Illustrious - Alexandria type camo ( 507B &507C, dark grey deck), on board Swordfishes - operation Judgement (attack on Taranto)
- HMS Victorious - mid-war three-color camo of colors B6, B55, MS1, deck dark green, on board Corsairs & Barracudas - operation Tungsten (attack on Tirpitz)
- HMS Indomitable - camo almost the same as that on Victorious, but two-colored flight deck (as seen above), on board Martlets, Sea Hurricanes & Albacores - operation Pedestal
- HMS Formidable - late war Admiralty scheme of MS3 color with stripe of B20 on sides, deck dark gray, on board Corsairs & Avengers - operation Iceberg (attack on Kerama Retto)
And bonus is "callsign Robin" - HMS Victorious serving on summer 1943 under US Navy command in Solomon Islands - all ship in Chicago Blue, on board USN Wildcats and Avengers.
Hope I remembered color codes correct :-)

Thank you for the explanation!
Paint and planes are time sensitive!
