"I have the model (work in progress). My plans show the shield / bracket for the running light in two configurations. Your model's configuration is that for HMCS SNOWBERRY or USS SAUCY. HMS BLUEBELL (yours) shows running light brackets 90 deg from your build."
I agree Royal (er Your Highness😁)
I too have kits for the Flower class 1/72.
One original 1st issue Revell version bought ca 30 years ago.
And one Revell Technik version bought recently.
Not really worth the extra cost for a small motor for the radar, a handful of LEDs and a battery box and switch🤔
The old kit makes HMCS SNOWBERRY or USS SAUCY.
Pic on the box shows the nav lights at 90° as you say Royal, obviously wrong as the pic of the real SNOWBERRY shows.
The newer kit makes HMCS SNOWBERRY or CAMPANULA.
Curiously the box art shows the nav lamps upside down, i.e. open to the top.
Also wrong, as pics of the original ship show.
Attached pic of the original Matchbox paint scheme for BLUEBELL show the lamps fitted as you have them Bill👍 Even if the box artwork is different!
Also attached is a pic of the real BLUEBELL underway on the Tyne.
Looking at that 'ya pays yer spondulix and takes yer choice'. A tricky perspective 🤔
All good fun eh chaps? 😉
Cheers, Doug 😎
