Daring class

I feel the need to do something smaller for a while so as I had started this one I thought it would do quite well it's a bit odd looking and still requires a lot of details. Probably by the time the drawing is finished Tarawa will be complete. The scale will be 1/200 as usual.

The Darings were the last RN gun destroyers and considered by many to be the best.

Darling is a great choice. I remember the old Airfix 1:600 kit with fondness. A neglected subject.

A few more details

Tarawa is off on show in one of the small venues for the Brighton Festival week so I have been playing with HMAS Vendetta.

Question what was the deck colour ?

Wish I could help on the coloring, Barry, but I draw a blank on this one, although I seem to recall seeing a model of the Vendetta that had gray (grey) decks of essentially the same color as the hull.

Anyway, the drawing is beautiful and I know the model will be, too.

Don
ps: I'm glad to see that Tarawa is getting some public exposure. All your long and hard work deserves to be seen by many people.

Hi Barry.
Great choice !. The Daring class (UK and Australian units) was a design of inmediate post-war and her design are the results of the experience gained during the conflict.
I think thatīs a very good model to construct, and the ship has a plus; is really nice and handsome.
About the deck color, usually in the war and inmediate post-war time the british destroyers used a grey paint, darkest than hull sides and superestructure (maybe G10 ?).
I saw a few photos long time ago (in the late sixties) with decks of some destroyers and frigates painted in a grayish- green and Peter Hodges book confirm that colour still in the early seventies.
I apologize for my bad english, and I hope you can understand me.
Saludazos
