John's Model Shipyard RN312 Kit of Dido-class cruiser with a 4in gun in Q-position. 1/1200
This kit makes a Dido-class cruiser with a 4in gun in Q-position. The kit is designed, 3D-resin printed in 1/1200 scale, external supports removed and packed by John's Model Shipyard, RN312. Rod for topmasts, glue and paints are required to finish the model.
Dido and Phoebe completed in this form and Dido gained the 5th turret on refit in 1941. Cleopatra, Argonaut and Euryalus had Q-turret removed in 1943-44 and this kit is a better fit for these models because the light AA fit and other printed details more closely represent late war condition. Phoebe never did get her 5th turret but she was given a quadruple pom-pom in lieu of the 4in gun.
The model in the large photograph shows the kit finished in the "Flotta scheme" worn by Phoebe in 1940 when she was based in Scapa Flow.
