My wife was wanting an old pirate ship so I just got her a 1/130 Lindberg Captain Kidd Pirate Ship (Actually the old Pyro Wappen von Hamburg kit) I opened it up and "WOW" this kit has a lot of pieces. I have to really take my time with it and hope to really nail this one, if not she just might really just nail me :woo_hoo: The problem is I can not find any good photos for picking the colors to use. Does anyone know what the real colors of all the pieces might be?
Thank You
Jerry :thumbs_up_1:

The majority of completed models appear to go green upper, red trim for railing,red inner walls. White for under hull or some leave it wood color. Real life colors for the ornamentation (like Vasa). Here is a painting of the WVH

Hi,
did anyone ever consider to convert this ship back into its Dutch example of 1632, the Aemilia, flagship of admiral Tromp?
