Your English is fine...better than a lot of the people who live here!

Yes…I was in a hurry to get my ship in the water too. I took a lot of short cuts and still have a lot of things to finish and/or redo. Your ship will be more sea worthy and not take on as much water as mine, if any…but the scuppers do there jobs well as I had no water below deck even though the deck was awash. As to the actual color of the Prince…I am not sure. Perhaps it is as I painted mine (per the model instructions), but I am more inclined to believe it would be closer to the color you have yours. I attached one artist’s rendition. I don’t know that the paint would be available to paint her the way I have mine at that time in a war. I’m sure if it was available, it was expensive to use. I would think they would use a tar or oil for the main part of the hull and maybe a stripe as in the painting.

Philip is the expert in all this, and I am sure he researched a great deal before he set out to model these ships. Perhaps he will read this and share some more of his wisdom with us?
