Paint for King of the Mississippi - moved by Moderator

hi Eddie.


I don't knwo if my input will really help you but I hope it does.

I very recently built (plastic, Life Like models) the Natchez Mississippi river packet.


I painted all the railings matt white, the 2 main decks light brown (Humbrol No 97 if I remember correctly) and the main upperstructure green (Humbrol No 47).


the 4 chimney stacks matt red (Humbrol 10 I think).


of course probably the Natchez had a singular paint set. I tried to research it before starting to paint but couldn't find any information.


If in doubt, I suggest you paint all the railings white, you leave everything else in natural wood. The chimney stacks in black and the paddle wheel either

white or matt red.


Hope I was of help.

Hey there, I have already completed this model a while ago. You will need White, Black, Bright Red, Brown/ Tan, Light Blue,( but not much of it) and a little bit of yellow. I also used a tinny bit of gold to show brass fittings etc, All the paints mentioned are Humbrol MATT. Good luck
