Re: Skywave 1:700 Cleveland Class Cruisers
The floater nets would be painted the same as the turret top and life rafts the same color camo as the surface they are lashed to or sit upon. If you wish to weather those items a bit lighter than surround metal I see no harm. I can not believe the camo paint issued adhered very well to flexible items such as floater nets and rafts.
In the instructions Part C13 is to be placed on top of the Mk16 6 inch turret. Does anyone know what it is? It appears to me to be the Cork floating device. Aso should the life rafts be orange? The color diagrams for the Miami CL-89. shows the life rafts as being the same color as the camouflage pattern. TIA
