Today, 80 years ago, HMS Kent was torpedoed by an Italian SM.79 bomber.

Here my interpretation of her fit before she was torpedoed:

HMS Kent (1/700)

I used the Aoshima kit, barrels by NNT and Master, PE parts by Tom's Modelworks, and AA guns by FineMolds and 3DModel Parts.

Today 80 years ago, on the 27th of November 1940, HMS Berwick fought in the Battle of Cape Teulada/Spartivento.

I built her using the Cornwall kit by Aoshima. The main differences are the forward 4" twins, which were further aft in case of Berwick, and that Berwick had not a shortened main mast. Unfortunately, many details of her November 1940 fit are unclear. There are drawings (e.g. County Class Cruisers, Shipcraft 19, British and Commonwealth Warship Camouflage of WWII, Volume 3 and Warship Perspectives Camouflage Volume 1), but they do not agree in many details. I have not found suitable photos to confirm them and decided to use Raven's drawings plus some photos or earlier and later fits.

with ships of two other County classes, the armoured cruiser HMS Monmouth (1901) and the missile destroyer HMS Glamorgan (1966).

Wonderful dioramas and ships Maxim :)

Given the new information that has come to light regarding the painting of Hood's underwater area, do we have any information on which of the Counties received paint treatment and antifouling from manufacturers such as Peacock and Buchans, and which colours were used?

The NMM builders model of Cumberland appears to be in black and white? Or maybe it's grey below the bootstrip?

If you scroll down the NMM/RMG page to the "Description" it tells you the colour below the boot-topping
