Re: That White Star Buff color is totally wrong
Good Afternoon Everyone,
Although liners are not my "thing". FWIW, I remember reading that White Star Buff had a pinkish tinge to it. I doubt anyone will be able to replicate it now.
Nevertheless, some kudos to Jeff Herne for marketing a set of paints for those who want to model the Titanic.
LOL. Just kidding. I don't think it's on the money, but then since no one seems to know for sure... I guess it's as good as any. I did find a download from a FB titanic sight that went into a bit of technical detail and did have a color image of a funnel of a WSL ship after a merger... although it is in later years, the color was likely the same... so we may have some 2nd had evidence of the true color.
But like the USN battle line at Pearl, I think that the true color situation may never be known.
