Good question. Same properties; both are photosensitive acrylate resin. Choose whichever color you prefer.

Nameplates for the three Flower class corvettes of the Irish Naval Service are now available. The ships enjoyed long service lives, first as convoy escorts with the Royal Navy from 1941-1946, then with the Irish Naval Service from 1946-1972. These three Flower-class corvettes constituted the major elements of the Irish Naval Service for 20+ years.

LÉ Macha, named after an ancient Irish goddess of war
LÉ Maev, named after Medb, the legendary queen of Connacht
LÉ Cliona, named after Cliodhna, queen of the banshees, and in some texts, an ancient Irish goddess of love whose song heals the sick

Here is LÉ Macha 01, during her Royal Navy service as HMS Borage:

Recent printings include parts to help convert your 1/600 scale HMS King George V or HMS Prince of Wales kit to sistership HMS Duke of York as she appeared during her 1945 British Pacific Fleet service.

New nameplates include several Irish Naval Service Emer-class, Peacock-class and Róisín-class offshore patrol vessels.
The abbreviation LÉ is the designation for "Long Éireannach", meaning "Irish Ship".
