I thought this photo might be of interest here. I found it while surfing one of those way-back type sites. This is a real color photo via the Autochrome process, not colorized, from a National Geographic collection. Note the floating drydock.

Here's another from the same series...and a competitor appears to be photobombing. Probably the only original color photo of an Olympic-class liner. :)

Can anyone recommend some good photo etch bits for a WWI Mauretania. I know the obvious Tom's/GMM liner sets. I'm talking more for the equipment that would be on the ship during the war.

Wow - how did I miss this before? What a great photo.

Isn't it, though. I completely forgot about that post until this thread popped up again.

PE-wise, I believe either Five Star, Flyhawk and/or Rainbow make 1/700 crates, boxes, ropes, and the like.

Unfortunately I'm working on the 350th scale kit of the Lusitania. I'll look into the same brands for the larger scale.
