Um, well. I guess I automatically pictured it in my mind by the books I have showing it in overall gray while on diplay in the past?

Don't get technical with me you young whipper snapper!

LOL I actually thought the same as well but went back and looked on page one, it clearly has the scheme on it, though it does differ slightly towards the front..

Yeah - she's wearing her dazzle scheme right now.

Mrs. Cat and I visited her shortly after she (the NC that is!) received her new paint job... and they were just beginning to replace her decks with new teak.

Good eye on seeing the differences in the camo scheme - her starboard side is pretty much correct, but when they painted the port they merely mirrored the starboard side's pattern?

So on the one hand her patterns are incorrect for 1943-44.... however, since the REAL ship is painted in that pattern, it *is* correct! LOL

I promise you fellas.... when I retire one of these years and Mrs. Cat and I move to Wilmington and I volunteer to work on her full-time (The NC, that is!) she'll get all the care I can give her. * (The NC AND Mrs. Cat....although Mrs. Cat will get the better treatment!)


* I half-jokingly mentioned this to Mrs. Cat. She actually likes the idea!

Hey I saw that you mentioned other PE places other then Eduards you have any links to their sites? I've got the Revell Titanic to build for my daughter.

Here's a link to a Titanic modelling site. They list pretty much all the brass that's available for Titanic kits right now. I don't know which you have, whether it's the 1/400 or 1/570, but there's brass for both. (1/600 will work for 1/570)

http://titanic-model.com/brass.htm

My favorite sites from which to order are:

www.squadron.com
www.freetimehobbies.com
www.pacificfront.com
www.spruebrothers.com

Also, you could try Tom's Modelworks and Gold Medal Models directly. I haven't done so, so I can't say for sure how your ordering experience will be...

www.tomsmodelworks.com
www.goldmm.com

Hope this helps

I've learned that modeling + rooms with carpet = bad...

Now since I live in an apartment I cant do anything about it, but when I get a house, my man cave will be a nice hardwood floor.

I'm right there with you - however, carpet can and does cushion impacts.

Just think Lucy Pinder after a car wreck.

She's salvageable, but she'll have her scars.

Yeah, most of her is.

LOTS of PE will need replacement, though.
