I am amazed by how different this ship can look from it British version.  With all the different weapons systems.  Keep up the good work

That is rather complicated. In my Navy days the alarm signal was "Heavy ringing bells" placed all over the ship. Activated 3 times, and followed by a speaker message (in Danish) "Klart skib - klart skib".

Then the Captain or the first Officer informed the crew of what was going on by the speaker system.

If a submarine was detected there was also horn signals. The only problem, we could not do much about the submarines, as we only got the old Depth Charges. About the same in the Royal Swedish Navy, at that time.

To day it is a bit different, as the RDN in many cases has adopted the RN speaker messages. F.ex. "Brace brace Brace for missile impact", I really have no knowledge of the signals any more - sorry

Maybe you have, as we have in Belgium, "Navy Days". It's open days at the navy yard in wich you can visit multiple vessels of various nations and where you can talk to all kinds of military men and women. I'm sure there they will be able to tell you about the signals.

Sorry for the long delay.
but the ship is no more unnamed!
When I prepared to paint the ship numbers, I decide this will be very hard and dangerous task, and the result will be not satisfying.
So I started to think about decals. I made the file, but the decal paper is manufactured... in China!
It's miracle it arrived! Few tests were needed, to be sure that the varnish will not damage the decals. But everything went good from the first time!
The ship's name was a difficulty too. The letters are 2mm high. You can see the toothpick for the scale on the few photos.
The last effort will be for the draft marks. And the time for final assembly will come!
Best Regards and stay safe!
