We should note that since the time this model was created, colour film of Hood has been found. As a result, some features on this model are not painted in the proper shade: These are the side booms and amidships derricks and the main gun blast bags. The booms were not bare wood as shown here, but were actually painted AP507B. The blast bags were not white as depicted on this model, but were actually AP507B. Other than that, Dave did a remarkable job in getting all the other details exactly correct. It just goes to show how excellent his initial paint research was!
