Model Merchant Marine

I have finally managed to paint the twelve merchant ships I made to go alongside my toy-like pre-dreadnought model warships.




I stuck to a very basic paint scheme of black hulls, white upperworks, brown hatch covers, and coloured funnels. This serves to distinguish them as merchant ships and to give each one a slightly different look.

    1. Phf,

      That is - I am afraid - a secret.

      All the best,

      Cheers! I am very pleased with the way they have turned out, especially as they were made from the leftover bits from the warships I built.

      All the best,

  3. Hi Bob,

    These look magnificent and they really capture that 'old school' look - I can't wait to see them in action!

    All the best,

      Thanks very much for your kind comment.

      I hope to play-test my naval rules sometime soon ... but want to try out AIRFIX BATTLES first.

      All the best,

      Bob

    1. Kev,

      Cheers old chap! I thought that the rules I intend to use were ready for play-testing ... and then realised that I needed to make a few minor changes first. Once these are completed, the play-testing of the rules can begin!

      All the best,

      Bob

    1. Archduke Piccolo,

      As I have written before, they have actually turned out better than I had hoped that they would, and I am very pleased that I chose the colour scheme that I did.

      All the best,

      Bob
