  1. Thanks Beefy, much appreciated Simon
  2. Thanks Beefy Is that for the hull and superstructure ? Cheers, Simon
  3. Hi, I am about to start my first ship model but I'm not sure which colours to use. Could anybody recommend which Tamiya or Vallejo colours I should use for my Tamiya 1/700 Gneisenau please ? I know other paint manufacturers do better matching colours but I'm not looking to buy another set of paints Many thanks Simon
  4. Hi, I have a number of WWII battleships and was wondering what is the best method for painting the deck. Is it easier to glue everything together, spray it all gray and then hand paint the deck or am I best masking/spraying the different areas prior to gluing the pieces together ? Would the approach be different for larger ships such as 1/350 ? Any advice would be much appreciated Cheers, Simon
