Hobart class pennant numbers

Postby glenhowells » 06 Dec 2017 03:28

Is there a reason for the Hobart's to carry a smaller font size number. The numbers carried on currant and previous ships look a lot bigger. Compare the size of the Perth class DDG considerably larger i think. Any answers thoughts.

Cheers Glen

They are actually standard size. They just look smaller on the tall bow I think. I checked with them when I did the builders models and they said then that they would be the standard size. Pennant numbers on large ships are a standard size of 6 feet (approx 1800mm) for the white part and then the black shadow is added. Unless something has changed which I'm not aware of.
