Kia ora Flower Class fans,

a query about HMS Hyacinth. In John Lambert's excellent Warships Perspective, the profile of HMS Hyacinth (page 69) seems to show an unusual turret for the forward gun. Is this the late QF Mk XIX 4" or a 3". I've just about worked out that the stern-most gun is probably a Hotchkiss 6 pounder (?). Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,
GrahamB

A 1/350 Captain-class DE as HMS Duckworth being fitted out.
Either a 1/700 Flyhawk HMS Invincible 1914 or a beautiful 1/350 Black Cat short-forecastle Flower Class next (as Hyacinth).

I do have another request.
Does anybody have the booklet Warship Perspectives: Flower Class Corvettes in World War Two?
Unfortunately it has been out of print for a while. I do have a photo, please see below and in ShipCraft’s Flower Class is a sketch of it. Therefore I assume that there is more in the Warship booklet.
If so, would it be possible to send me some high resolution photos from the pictures / drawings of the Snowflower?

Thanks,

Hermann

Was able to purchase it.

A member posted this in a Flower class group,

"Good evening all! I’m after a bit of assistance! I’m building a corvette that was used on the artic convoys and was after any information on how the covers over the air vents were fitted! They look hexagonal on a round cowling? Thanks in advance"

The ship in question is the "Alisma", a photo is in the Flower Class Corvette book by John Lambert
The author of the post inaccurately said hexagon instead of octagon shape of grill.

Looking for some help please on a colour, Ensign 03 Flower Class Corvettes on page 3 has a picture of HMS Convolvulus mid 1941 that says ‘she is painted in an overall mid grey’ would this be 507B. Any help appreciated Al.

There was a lot of confusion about RN colors from various sources. Thanks to the research by James at Sovereign Hobbies 507B is the same color as 507A with the enamel removed.
The mid grey could be a 50/50 mix of 507A/B and 507C due to wartime conditions.
Only Sovereign sells these paints.
Click their link on the front page for a better explanation.
Of course it's your model & your paint so (mid gray) is your choice of paint.
Good luck

I forgot White Ensign sells these paints in America, they are also located on the front page
And they are enamel paints.

Thank you JCRAY, I was aware of James research which was why I asked. I have a couple of tins of the old 507B bought for British battleships which is no longer correct, so was hoping as you say the mid grey is the 50/50 mix.
Thanks again Al.
