Narrow Seas [14]

I spent most of the weekend on an infernal combination of schoolwork and searching for a new car, so the coastal warfare painting plans were shoved to one side. However, I've now done the camouflage patterns on the MGB's and the SGB, ready for a wash in GW Nuln Oil, leaving the trawlers to be tackled on their own, as they deserve a bit of attention to detail.

The rather crude camouflage and the deck colour on the SGB / MGB's is a bit of guesswork but is based on some profiles in the Osprey British Motor Gun Boat 1939-45 book, so can't be that far off the mark. I'll do the detailing bit after the ink wash, which should make them look a little less rough and ready. Anyway, it's always a bit 'ho hum' at the stage in the proceedings, so I'm not feeling too worried about the end result...?


  1. Looking good. Can't wait to see them on the table.

  2. Fancy a game when they're done?

  3. oh yes Jim. What rules do you intend to use?

  4. Cool.

    I have several possible rules...probably Action Stations or Coastal Patrol.
