Hunt Type 2 HNoMS Arendal (formerly HMS Badsworth L03) escort destroyer 1945, pre-final-gluing at (prototype) 1:371 ( :-) ) scale. Building down at 1:700 or even 1:1200 for wargaming would would have been MUCH faster/easier.


Considering I had already designed the Hunt Type 1, this has taken a LONG time. Of course, I did do coloration this time. Painting digitally is FAR easier, cleaner, and less toxic than with enamel paints.

Thank you, Don. And here is as much as I'm going to do on her for now ... unless she is to be finished for display which is not planned at this point. .She *is* test-built now.

Note the latewar radar column astern of the pompom - you can see the unconstructed searchlight platform in the foreground - and the latewar distance-misleading camouflage panel along the hull. This is as she was in May 1945, when she arrived in liberated Norway.

Wow! The close angle parallax really distorts the turrets', etc. alignment. They really are square, though.
