What colour for s-boat wheelhouse

Recommended Posts

Does anyone of the experts here know what colour the inside of the wheelhouse should be. I've seen a dark, near black for late war S-100 boats, but what about early S-38 boats?

The experts over at Forum Marinearchiv came up a divided jury, one group calling for light (grey), the other for very dark grey (black). One gentleman had specific information:

"1x Leichtmetallgrundanstrich 2x Leichtmetall Farbe Schwarz Seidenglanz."

i.e. "1 coat of primer for aluminum, followed by 2 coats of satin black".

Hth,

Richard

Many thanks Richard, I went for the dark grey as it seemed more suitable than the white specified in the instructions.

Vallejo also have a paint that is the correct shade of Schnellbootweiss 70993 White Grey for the exterior. I used Revell Aquacolour Anthracite for the wheelhouse.
