After the Graf Spee, what else could I assemble but the HMS Exeter. I got the kit several months ago, and have been adding some aftermarkets for a better experience, like:
1. Eduard Big Ed PE,
2. Infini models Brass Masts,
3. Scale Chain
4. Master Model 8" barrels
5. Master Model 4" barrels
6. Wooden base (same as used for the Graf Spee) it will be a waterline model.

Currently I am saving "energy" to start in earnest, soon!

Are the color recommendations in Trumpeter Instructions correct for the Dec 1939 scheme?

Mr Hobby H338, Acryvision N338, Vallejo 907, Model Master 1732 (FS36495), Tamiya XF14, Humbrol 147

I was trying to order Colourcoats 507C but it says it is discontinued. Any equivalent to it within the same Colourcoats range?

Hi Marco,

She was wearing overall 507C at the River Plate. Trumpeter's colour guide for the horizontals however is an absolute train wreck, copying lots of curious errors from Profile Morskie who got confused, it seems, between decks and sun awnings. There was no beige deck paint.

I'm almost certain that the open bridge was laid with Corticene. The deck around B turret was planked. The roofs of the deck houses otherwise was dark grey, not beige. There were dark grey plated areas between the davits either side of the bridge superstructure.

Hi Jamie, thanks, I followed (and filed) all the assembly of your HMS Exeter, so you better did everything right with that one ´cause I´ll follow it step by step! Corticene, read a lot about it, need to look at the color for that one. I bought Mosrkie profile and saw the mistakes. I am ok fixing most of the things, the topic that could be more difficult is the planked deck around turret B.
