Captain Slog Posted September 6, 2014 Share #1 Posted September 6, 2014 Hi, I am nearing the stage where I will be skinning up the hull of my card Bismarck. I plan on punching out the portholes on the hull and superstructure sides and using black film behind but I also have tiny brass photo-etch portholes to place round the hole. My question is were the portholes on real ships left shiny brass on both the hull and superstructure or should I paint them gray to match the ship. I can imagine the ones on the superstructure were but not sure about the hull sides. Most photos are black and white and hard to tell and the models where they were replaced and left brass appear jarring to the eye sometimes. I would think having the crew polish brass would be a good way to keep idle hands busy but... Cheers Slog Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
