Antifouling paint colors on late 19th century steamships

Recommended Posts

Greetings brun...


Nice question, and I wish I had the definitive answer instead of just an opinion. I expect that shipyards of that era would have discovered the merits of lead based paint which is typically red and probably anti fouling. Not sure why it would show up as pink on models - unless the original darker red color was bleached by sunlight.
