After all this time and people asking me for the past five years….I have finally finished the first release in my series on the camouflage schemes of warships of WW2.
HIDING IN THE OPEN book 1, deals with British destroyers from the old R class of WW1 to the Tribal class. 144 full colour drawings in a variety of schemes including discussion of changes of armament, electronics etc. Layout in portrait so as to give nice large reference drawings to view.

The guides are intended to allow the wargamer and ship modeller to leaf through to find a scheme suitable for a model they wish to paint.

They are available in PDF form direct from myself using PayPal and will cost $20 USD Australian dollars. They will soon also be available from a UK site for those who wish to pay by credit card.

These books have been many years in the coming. I started collecting the material decades ago and they represent a lifetime's work on the subject. Editions coming include German and other nations besides more British & Commonwealth. The guides will cover everything from Battleships and aircraft carriers right down to minor craft and auxiliaries. Many of the drawings are already done and its just a matter of adding more and then collating the books.


My email is or you can request an invoice to be sent via PayPal.

Good stuff Mal, you must be as busy as a cat with two mice at the moment.

Yep….even busier than that cat.
This is the culmination of a lifetime of research and goodness knows how many long…long…hours of drawing the ships.
