  1. Thank you PJG and all the likes Thanks Jim, The instructions have them gold so I stuck with that. I've also seen them the same color as the hull painting and black. I don't know what would be accurate on a real ship. Thanks Bob, The gold and white are rattle can spray paint. I'll have to get the brands when I get home but they are generic paints. The red and blue colors are brushed on. They are Admiralty Paint Red Ochre and French Blue.
  2. She's looking really good Glenn. I was just looking at the directions on page 54. In one of the pictures the gun ports look painted red. Just wanted to point that out incase you want to paint them first. As far as the guns go I'll try rigging them but will have to see how it looks.
  3. Thank you Chris, Glenn, Jim, Glenn again, B.E., Jean-Paul and Bob. Also all the likes! Everything is designed and fits so well that good results are almost guaranteed.
  4. Thanks Bob I've completed the the fancy PE on the bulwarks to the bow now. The figure head was primed and then painted gold. After it was dry I placed it on the stem. A little sanding was needed to get it to slide in place. Then I placed the remaining PE at the bow.
  5. Thanks Glenn, I'm trying to keep up with your fine work. Thanks Jim, The decoration is what attracted me to the DOK. Thanks DelF, This is some of the nicest PE. Thanks Glenn, I too was wondering and the cautious side of me had to use a dab of CA just in case but it seems to work just as advertised.
  6. I've started making the Duchess shine with some of her fancy window and port decorations. All were glued in place with a touch of CA glue. And here is the first of the photoetched decorations. Being the cautious type a tiny drop of CA was placed on the backside tacking them in place. Two coats of Future (Now Pledge Revive It) were applied and must say I'm happy with it so far.
  7. Hi Bob. Looks real nice. I too painted as seen in the instructions not the plans. It's your ship so whatever is your paint scheme it's right.
