  1. Nice progress as always, only one question... Regards, Michał.
  2. Aye, aye sire. To give her black bottom! Let me go back to anti-skid plates question. I remember a few months ago Rob tried to get right anti-skid plates for his cruisers. Some time later I reckoned many frigattes (and corvettes) had anti-skid plates installed on decks too. Not all, but quite a lot.

  8. Thank you Fellows, for very interesting discussion and very helpful for rest of us. I must admit I looked at Mr Ough's models the same way as dird did just to know how Ough painted decks One more remark if you please: Recently we discussed with Keith @beefy66 about appropriate doors for his Portchester Castle model. He wanted use nr 2 pattern, while I found some photos of Castles with nr 1 doors - and no with nr 2 variant. After our nice conversation I recalled that Ough wrote quite a lot about doors (drawning below is from his book, p. 95). Let's read his
  9. Impressive! Every cat would love such splendid catwalk! Me too... And these tiny, black footprints on such beautifull light decks and white walls. From coal-bunk to the wheel-house. Up and down, here and there. And back. And again! P A R A D I S E !!! Meeeeoooowww....
  10. Almost ready to take-off! Did I say I love the owl? Beside, It symbolises wisdom... Stomil means 100 miles. The company still exists. If you like as well emblems like these...
