HMS Trenchant request
« on: March 24, 2012, 10:53:59 AM »

Have started on my Trafalgar class build and would like to model her on HMS TRENCHANT and  paint her when the time comes in the colour she sported in I think 1999 which was the blue camo on her flank I have done some research and have some photos of her but the photos are a bit well not to good also found an airfix kit modeled on the Trenchant my request is has anybody got any decent photos of the said sub that they would be willing to share on here with me ??

Regards Mark

That's cool!  :-)) Subs are always a little dangerously on the drab side.  %)

The blue camouflage has been done quite a bit. Couldn't persuade you to base it on HMS Torbay, which featured an unbroken all over blue paint scheme? Haven't seen that done on a working Trafalgar class model, and it's a bit different from the usual black or grey.
