Here is my Combrig HMAS Canberra I finished in 2005. The ship represents the final configuration in 1942 - to the best of the references I could find. It was finished with the White Ensign Models County Class Cruiser set.  I added the WEM Pro Resin large radar lantern and Walrus seaplane. The flag is from Dunagain Decals. I rigged the ship in .002 Dai Riki Monofilament. I painted the ship in WEM Colourcoats B15 - the best approximation for RAN Chicago Blue. I got the idea from John Snyder at WEM / Snyder & Short. It does match the color chip fairly closely. The 8" gun barrels are from Steve Nuttall's CNC HMS London class barrels. While the resin supplied gun barrels are adequate and straight, Steve's barrels are incredible and dressed up this great little kit in a big way. Keep them coming, Steve!

Additionally, I scratch-built the whistle platform on the #1 funnel as well as the bridge windows and Batt 2 windows. The figures are from Gold Medal Model's 1/700 scale set - hand painted.
