The beautiful Combrig 1/700 Novorossiysk (ex-Giulio Cesare) is out. I just finished this kit. What is so appealing to me, is that the kit includes certain parts to make her final appearance (1954/55) during her stint in the Soviet Black Sea Fleet. Various Soviet pattern radars, and single as well as twin Soviet 37mm AA guns are included.
For myself, this version is VASTLY more appealing than her 1937 thru WWII appearance in the Italian NAVY.

Please send photos to the gallery so we can all enjoy it. Definitely not something you see everyday.

As Orange Hobby released the Caio Duilio 1941 - did anyone yet checked this kit? I ordered it for Christmas, to have some opponents to my planned Queen Elizabeth and several british destroyers and cruisers in build or planned.

Here are some pics of the new Orange Hobby Caio Duilio kit. I have no idea as to the overall accuracy. There are 2 PE frets, sets of brass barrels for the main, secondary and 3.5-inch AA guns, decals including "DVILIO" for the stern, and a wooden stand that has to be assembled for a full hull build. There is a 6-page instruction sheet and a painting guide.

The paint guide needs guidance! First, it shows fewer red/white stripes than the CAD pictures of the model and the camo colours need clarification - "light sand" and "navy grey", with "deck ash" for the steel decks.

Does anyone know the actual RM colours? The scheme is similar to that worn by Vittorio Veneto in 1941 and the WEM site says the colours on VV were Grigio Scuro (dark grey), Giallo Verde (yellow-green), Bianco Sporco Opaco (matte off-white). Would it have been the same for Duilio?

Nice! I have the kit in the post, too.

Colors are probably Grigio Chiaro and Grigio Scuro. I am going to use the lifecolor regia marina set for painting.

I would also get this book from the library, when starting:

OK thanks.

Here's a shot next to my Littorio to give a size comparison!
