Thank you for the photo of Warspite's "B" turret - interesting that the actual 0.5" guns themselves are absent - just their mountings are shown!

Hi everyone!
I am about to start construction of Trumpeter's 1:700 Valiant. I intend to depict her as in November 1941.
I found that of the two near-identical sisters (after reconstruction) QE is much better documented. I have not found an accurate plan of Valiant from the period in question, just a side profile in R.A. Burt's book and some others in the Shipcraft publication dealing with class as well as another one in the Ensign 4 booklet. Of these, the one in Burt's book is the most detailed.
This means that I will construct a QE with some differences here and there.
The differences known to me are:
- pole mainmast
- no sternwalk
- different aircraft/boat handling cranes
- minor differences in the bridge structure, i.e just two portholes on the upper bridge face, some differences in the sides
- different style ladders leading from the quarterdeck to the forecastle deck
- external degaussing cable.
Apart from the ones listed above I am afraid I have to stick to QE's plans although I know that e.g. the arrangement of deck vents must have been somewhat different. WEM's instructions for their PE set mention a difference in the fit and location of the ship's boats but do not specify.
Can anybody add anything to the list above?
I would be extremely grateful as I strive to be as accurate as possible.
