I think Sheff may have had green decks at the time she carried a Wasp and not grey decks.

Cheers,

Rob

Nick. Just stumbled across those fabulous photos of LIVERPOOL RASing. Do you know who took them and who owns the copyright? We may be interested in using them for our internal publications and would like to approach the photographer.

Nick, I see that you are the photographer of those LIVERPOOL photos. I am keen to contact you off-board. Perhaps you could contact me on DMC-HoldingOfficer4@mod.uk

Thanks. Max

Which colour had the flight deck of the Type 42 ships during the Falkland War? The normal dark grey or something darker?

I have seen that the landing deck on HMS Bristol in 1982 was darker than the rest of the steel decks and I am wondering, if also other ships had this feature.

Having seen HMS York four times ,and managed to get some Jecobin plans and loads of photos of her .I was lucky enough to get hold of a WEM HMS Nottingham batch II ,which I built as HMS Sheffield a batch I ,this model was damaged in a competition ,and I salvaged some of the parts to use in my scratch-build of the York.What a pity there isn`t a IM kit of a T42,now that they have gone out of service.

Regards Phil

Hi guys,

I'm new to Royal Navy ships and recently bought a pit road 1/700 HMS Newcastle kit. I would like to build HMS Sheffield at the time of her sinking in 1982.

Is there any changes need to be made to the kit to make an accurate kit and what aftermarket details needed.

The kit says its a batch 1 but I don't know the difference.

Thank you and hope I can ask more questions
