HMS Lincoln (ex USS Yarnall DD-143)
Here is my last job. I choose to represent this ship because i was "touched" by a picture from Warship Illustrated n° 4- British Destroyer in WWII (p.63). I liked the linear Western Approaches camo vs a very dark gray colour applied onto all the decks. I noted that the fits of british "flush deck" were very different from a ship to another, not necessarily caused by the year and site of refit. Airfix kit, surely dated, permits many modifications. There are many pictures in the Net, selection is very hard.
The ship is represented in the Atlantic in 1942 after her refit in USA. I didn't use any PE. Without unuseful pride, i think it's the best build i did (almost until now ...).
