Ships

Here's the place for discussions about those 3D creations for Tguage...and lets not forget the trials and tribulations of designing and printing.

Hi T Guage people

Just to give you all another update on how things are doing.

I have started now to paint it and it is looking some what better than before :?:

I have used gloss blue 15 humbrol for the hull and will use the gloss 22 white for the upper decks.

hope you enjoy. :lol:

Regards
Graham

The ship looks very good while painting started. Congratulations. To get more realistic model I would suggest painting lifeboats orange instead of red. Very often they are two colours with lower part to waterline beeing painted white. Sometimes top is yellow. I am not 100% sure about maritime safety regulations but I think red is "reserved" for firefighting and coastquard. Probably you may find so me more information using word "SOLAS". The model is impressive !

This explains why I've never won a photographic contest.....I'm crap at taking photos! :?
