truth be told I don't know that salt spray and endless sunshine would have left the teak deck that dark, but I do like the color contrast with the blue camo so I am going to leave it looking that way
One final session and I managed to get this one finished. I have to admit I really hate the crazy camouflage patterns that were in vogue at the time, a simple coat of gray and I would have been done a week ago!
the light AA guns still need to be added but I wanted to get some pictures
of the "all scratchbuilt" model before I glued them into place
sailing with the light cruiser Dauntless
with any luck I can have the other one done by next week
