English Pinnace color scheme


Recommended Posts

Just ordered the English Pinnace kit from Modelexpo (great deal at $34.99, think the sale is good for a few more days, code is Blues14).  The color scheme in the pictures is nice but about the only way you can make a kit like this a bit different from all the others like it is the paint.  My question is what colors would be appropriate for an 18th century pinnace?  The reccomended colors/decorations look like they would be for a very senior officer with a lot of money to spend on making his pinnace a show piece.  What about all the lesser officers with fewer personal resorces?  I would like to have a boat representative of the work a day craft likely to be carried by the average man of war.

My advice and comments are always worth what you paid for them.

Oh boy...you are only limited by your imagination.  Check out the NMM site and the gallery of contemporary model here at MSW.
