Julian,
You are correct about Mig's weathering.. a crappy trading vessel may get to look that battered, but I don't think a naval vessel would due to the fact that chipping and painting is a fantastic way to keep bored sailors occupied on long periods away from home...

Exactly what I thought too. Some of the effects seam to be too much.
I've got the whole navy washes and oils on hand and I'm really looking forward to try them.
I guess I'll try them on a Flower Class Corvette first, as they often looked very worn.

Hi Eric,
that would probably be a wise choice, the Flower class ships were really hard worked on the Atlantic runs. Too wet a ship to do any serious maintenance at sea,
cheers,
Julian

My thoughts exactly Warren, keeps the lads out of mischief too, (the Devil finds work for idle hands, or something like that I seem to remember ).
Cheers,
