Hermione by philo426 - Artesania Latina - 1:89

Oops!I made a bad mistake!I mislabeled bulkheads 6 and 9!I had to cut down 9 and cut 2 new bulkheads to the correct profile for #9!I had to cut the #9 bulkheads out if plastic because the only thick wood I had was 1/8th plywood that shattered when I tried to cut them out with my coping saw.I will plate them with thin wood after they dry.Not a mistake I wish to repeat!

No you have to supply your own paint but thst is normal.Finished decking but ran out of mahogany abd used the white wood in the kit to finish.Used stain to even it out but the mahogany darkened more than expected.I may sand it or use a gray wash to represent weathered wood.

But there are not specified.... for example "red" what kind of red? AL in its webpage gives a table where the colors of Hermione are specified according to "Patone color model".It gives the numbers of that system which ofcourse do not correspond with any known model paints brand i.e. vallejo or revell or humbrol etc. Thats what am bothering you about. The question is how are we going to pick the right colors if there are no specification given in the kit.

 

Hope am not driving you crazy with my persistance but I think is something we have to find out before buying the paints.

 

All the best and thank you for your response.

Thanks philo

 

In the mean time I spoke with a gentelman -modeller- from AL and he gave me the coresponding colors to the real ship in Vallejo numbers. If you wish I can send you the actuall numbers AL gave me.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
