Nah they didn't but its not worth taunting the Evil Empire in the first place, particularly since i'd like them to reply with "design assistance" one day

And I read somewhere that the Maersk Blue is a mix of Pantone Blue and Offwhite....

The colour on the continger pic is weird because I had to reduce it to 256 colours.

Springer hulls,


The only built up (fiberglass) Springer hull, is from Micro-Glass. All the others are made from mainly plywood, by the individual modelers. There was a laser cut set of wood parts, for the hull only, made in Canada. The boats are basically scratch built. I have a Micro-Glass hull, it is a nice piece, and it saved me a lot of work. There are no parts for the deck, or superstructure, that I know of. CaptCB

Deckie, Pantone is a colour reference system. It would be a series of numbers that is universally used by anyone using colour, paint manufacturers, graphic designers, printing industry etc.

Good idea...I did one for veterans day...it was blown up and sank My wife wanted me to name one springer I built.."Hands"..because my hands keep getting in the wrong place at the wrong time with the CA..Like on a first date I just want to have fun while I can still function. I will still have the floaters in my eye...just can't control them in such a limited space.

"Hi guys.

Thanks for all of your replys. :-)
Maersk could actually help, and the RGB color code for Maersk blue is
RGB 76 188 208

The Maersk blue is a mix of four Pantone colors:
Pantone Process Blue 12.30
Pantone Yellow 012 0.10
Pantone Black 1.35
Pantone Trans. white 86.25
Total..... 100.00

How about that. :-)

Yours sincerely, Robert
