Re: Aquitania in WW2
CM made a model of Aquitania, all grey except for red funnels, which was said to be for Aquitania immediately after she was handed back to Cunard but there is no indication where guns might have been on that model. Carlo had released 4 versions of Aquitania (pre-WW1, Hospital Ship, Dazzle Camouflaged WW1 troopship and the post WW2 version. If I remember correctly, Cunard announced her scrapping in the press in early 1949, so it was interesting to see that picture where it looks as if they repainted her fully before scrapping!
