I would like to share how to paint ship’s ‘oil canning effect’ which was adopted my recent built, 1/350 DDG-177 Atago in Gallary. First of all, it is needed to simplify color change by daylight as below, a part of simplified body plan. And I supposed that shapes of oil canning effect shall be almost same, while I know that actual shapes of oil canning effect are very various.

File comment: On the basis of above assumption, I mixed colors to make 3 affiliated colors as below.
Used basic color is light ghost gray which is a Korean brand and equivalent to #308 of GSI Creos. I will call just original #308 hereunder. Prepared colors are light #308, original #308 and dark #308 to paint hull and out-side of bridge and funnel building of the ship.

File comment: As the first step, I painted whole area with dark #308.
And, I am painting horizontal lines with light #308 using masking tape and airbrush to be irregular line like red arrow. The reason why I marked green arrow is that I attached a paper at inner side of masking tape not to be rolled up excessively for work convenience.
Distance between a line and next line is about 1.5mm which is almost same ratio with real ship.

File comment: To make oil canning effect on below water-line, I prepared a mixed color as the left of below picture as ‘light hull red’. The right hull red is the color which was overlaid whole area of below water-line before work for vertical and horizontal lines.

That looks great; the effect is very subtle but enhances the overall feel of scale of the model considerably :thumbs_up_1:

Similar to shading between the ribs on wings and fuselages of fabric-covered aircraft, especially WWl. :wave_1:
