I concur with Stavros on that one - and,as a guess, I would say the builder used the yellow to avoid having the hassle of masking it off. The yellow in the photo appears to be the correct colour for the Bulwarks O0

And I've just noticed, again in the photo, part of the deck is the original green. This is showing through where some fittings have been removed on the Stbd side :-))

I'll check back in the workshop tomorrow, but I'm fairly certain the deck colour was (in Humbrol) Duck-egg Blue. Well, it was on my Smit Nederland anyway.
I'll double check the Humbrol number while I'm at it.  :-))

Hi Pad. You were spot on with Humbrol 23 - couldn't find my old info but google search confirms 23 = Humbrol Matt "duck egg blue". O0
 
Hope yer gonna post some progress pics when you get into it :D
