I see the end closing..almost all inner railings done...starting to do rigging where difficult access after having other stuff put on....
all you see ...is now fixed...many details to put on are also done but...waiting to do more railings to put them on
I hope to finish by friday

btw...some colour differences are shade due to a ceiling light I used ...

The life boats and launches look fantastic. Nice job with the modifications.

What color brown did you use for these boats? Or colors...

That hue, in that light, looks nice. Congrats.

txs Paul,
the darker brown is indeed my own making...well mixing is better said.
I use Tamiya paints
mix darker brow of the small boats is ...
- 1 X yellow XF 3
- 2 X red X 7
- 2 X red brown XF 64

the lighter brown inside is also a mix of my own...as I didn't like the standart deck color ...I made one ...but forgot to write down what I used for it
so..when reserve empty...will have to make new mix....this time I'll write down lol even if only for myself

the reason I make scale 1/400 ships is because I have a airplane collection that scale and I like being able to compare...

Boeing 747-100
Marceau
Admiral Scheer
Prinz Eugen (to build)

some from pictures...but also logic thinking.....on a ship there are always handrails when there is a danger ..no captain wants a sailor falling overboard or fall even from 2 meters....so I imagine myself on board and do what needs where must
