    Sorry to say, Julián, that it's a mix of two paints. An old Humbrol Acrylic 93 and Citadel doombull brown. My decks is a mix of Humrol acrylic 93 and 34 which is white.

    Jonas, the other reason my stripework has improved is that I *plan* on "overshoots" and multiple correction passes to finesse the edges. FIne tuning Culloden and the other Ganges models at the lower stern is going to be a nuisance because I can't get really good angles with my brush until they come off the rafts.

    Well, so do I. I paint outside and then clean up.

    Thank you very much.

    It's not a problem if it's not the same. There will be big differences noticeable anyways.

    Have the new hull reached you yet?

    Culloden with her line-mate Majestic (full yellow gallery) to starboard and Captain (black-top gallery; shoulda used fellow Nile participant Orion instead) to port.

    Those boys are certainly going to add a little panache to your fleet DB.

    I will add to the other complements here - Great paint jobs. I like the idea of leaving the ships on the supports for painting too. I should think that you won't see print lines at normal viewing distance. I hope not my Anycubic Mono arrives next week! Also sourced a used W&C station on Ebay.

    As always when dealing with digital stuff there's going to be some steps when you have a surface slightly sloping through the "pixels".

    You could probably avoid those that I sanded down slightly by printing the ships at a 45 degree angle on the build plate but that would mean every gun barrel would be pixelated along the length of the barrel, and I think that would be worse. The problem didn't go away with anti-aliasing but it's a little bit smoother so it helped some.

    And no, after painting it's hardly noticable without the extra light shining on the edges. At armlength distans it's not noticable at all.

    Well, more collision repair to do... after successfully repairing Orion, I now need to replace the outer lanterns on Purisima Concepcion after taking her out of the studio to show a friend on Wednesday. (Mind you, this was in a padded case for transport!)

    Speaking of Orion, touched her up a little and added a black strake wrapping around the transom--this was at the point where the lower strake meets the stern, so I assumed as an extension of that structure the planking would probably be painted similarly.

    I have been lying doggo for most of yesterday, apart from the AAR, but hope to get back on the painting trail later today.

    Jonas, when you have the entire Ildefonso-Montanes family done I may need to ask you about an ID chart for 'em, ditto the Nepomucenos. :)

    The Ildefonso-Montanes family from what I have gathered are not that interesting in their paint schemes. just the two yellow lines. I have been looking at the modelers for inspiration on stern galleries, but I haven't found much on Monarca yet so she may get just a free styled guess from me.

    The Nepomucenos have a longer history and therefor a wider choice, from Cape Vincent 1780 to Trafalgar. There too, the famous ones have paintings and models and the less famous disappears in obscurity and therefore painted as I find interesting but not necessarily "correct".

    I can live with guessed but possible paint schemes on some of my ships.

    My biggest question is the model for Bahama and Rayo (post rebuild). And Bahama I have a paint scheme for...

    Whilst waiting for some glue to set on the fishing village, I made a start on sketching out the Harbour defences.

    Then after a few amendments to the design, using the new chart I cut a rough outline of the area from plasticard and glued a similar shap cut from foamboard onto the base.

    Coming along nicely, Rob.

    With all the attention on the Canadas, time for the Gangeses to get some love...

    Ganges - no references, on hold until I find some - all "primer only" ships are Black Gray overall

    Culloden - eyewitness description from Nile, best guess combined with contemporary general practices referenced on Captain and Majestic. Flat Yellow hull with Black Gray strakes and Golden Yellow beakhead/gallery.

    Tremendous - primer only waiting for white paint, based on this painting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Tr...Canonniere.jpg
    Will have a single high Off-White band on UD with similar gallery markings.

    Invincible - primer only no references, on hold until I find some

    Minden - based on this painting https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...cropped%29.jpg Desert Yellow and Black Gray hull, Golden Yellow beakhead and gallery railing.

    The model is moving on a pace today.The walls are all cut to size and trialled before gluing and the end of the rocky outcrop has been modelled and is in place.

    Now the rock has been shaded and the walls dry brushed and stuck down ready for adding the details.

    Thank you both. That magnifying lamp has made wonders.

    Thanks for the reputation.

    That is gorgeous, Rob!

    Jonas, my GF on your work: "That Jonas guy must be young, or has amazing eyesight (yes, I realise that magnification is a must when painting that small)"

    Victory figurehead gilded, other than touchup all hulls now on hold and on to mast assembly and sorting-out.

    A few years past 50 and near sighted...

    Funny thing: The one thing on that last ship I'm most proud of is the figurehead. There wasn't any on the model. I just painted that in. Most of the other stuff is just painting in the raised stuff that's already there on the model.

    I think she meant it as a compliment, amigo--she's just past 50 herself, and used to do figurines of various kinds herself in her 20's and 30's.
