There are now several D class light cruiser kits available in 1/700:

ORP Conrad (ex HMS Danae) by Niko Models
ORP Dragon 1943 (ex HMS Dragon) by HP Models
ORP Conrad 1945 (ex HMS Danae) by HP Models
HMS Delhi 1942 by HP Models
HMS Danae 1918 by HP Models
HMS Durban 1919 by HP Models

I am planing to built a new model of the Polish light cruiser ORP Dragon since years, but now I have started using the ORP Conrad kit by Niko Models. There are some changes necessary for her 1944 fit, e.g. the PomPom directors have to be replaced by 20 mm Oerlikon. Also the bridge is wrong for Dragon, especially the upper forward part, but probably also the rear end of the bridge.

Very strange are the deck colours usually mentioned: wooded, non-painted decks plus blueish steel decks. Is this realistic for 1944!?
