Arethusa in the large picture is a model made from this kit to represent Arethusa as she was disguised for the Lofoten Raid. The idea was to have Arethusa lead the group to land troops on the islands, so she was disguised as a German ship with a splinter style camouflage on the hull but with white instead of light grey so that she would be less visible in the poor light and typical misty weather when approaching the coastal defences but to appear as a German ship once she had been spotted. The recognition swasticas were applied to the decksĀ  in case she was first detected by German aircraft.
