Re: Beardmore Project - Painted Model
I don't actually know whether the deck was intended to be wood or steel.
I decided to paint it as steel as one of the early photos of Furious' flying off deck showed that it was steel.
Is the deck steel or wood that is painted?
I decided to paint my Beardmore model in Victorian colours - as I think this scheme suits such an unusual design.
Building this model has shown me that I need to modify some of the components and then make new moulds to make assembly more straightforward.
I also need to devise a more convincing 'buff' - the shade used here dried more yellow than I wanted.
