Progress.. (past Murmansk?)

Quick paint on the decks of the carrier, plus  GW 'space-wolves grey' drybrush on the rest of the Red Banner..

Here's how they look day two..  red decks to go, interestingly I noticed on the older ships, the deck is a greyish red/brown, and the helidecks etc are quite a red brown.

Boris Chilikin - Fleet Oiler

The Flat-tops

Pauk & Tarantul Corvettes

Slava & Ukrainya


  1. I'm looking forward to your next step ... the deck marking :-P

    Starting to look the business mate.

    And, in a further comment about grey, see:


    Which was taken in February 2011 which was taken in the Guld of Thailand and


    Which was taken in November 2011 in the Gulf of Aden

    In both cases it is an Republic of Singapore vessel - different vessels I will admit - with two different US vessels. Note the shades of grey and how in the second picture the USS George H W Bush actually almost looks white.

    I guess there are somewhat more than 50 shades of grey!

    1. I will have a crack at the decks tonight I reckon. Deck Markings are simple (I Hope!) There also seems to be a huge variety of them. But I have cunning plans...
