Just another tip. on the bow of the ship, you can see the small 'rail' steps leading down in front of the anchor. On photos they do not run so far down as shown on the drawing, but just to the same hight as the porthole. Nice detail is that on Hr. Ms. Sumatra, the same steps are situated more above ...

Found one other thing, the brown stripe on the side, what is it supposed to be? The "walking planc" was higher and further aft and the line at that place I see on photos, always seem to be in the same colour as the flank.

Nice ones Alvama, can we be seeing some K-classes submarines soon, and perhaps the modern O class? On the Java I am not sure about the camouflage pattern however, I think the dark and light should be reversed and altered a bit: http://www.go2war2.nl/artikel-afb/9058100916192259g.jpg Photo: Australia...

Caroline is due to be put out of 'action' this year. The plan is to keep it as a museum ship. Restoration is in discussion, but in discussion only, no plans to actually do that. The ship will be held 'in commission' with the Royal Navy until a satisfactury future has been established.
