There are few direct matches between RAL and Bs381c colour charts, but you can make your own best match from this online convertor.....
https://www.e-paint.co.uk/Colour_alternatives.asp?

The Bs381c colours are
Blue = shade 105
Orange = shade 577
Different people have chosen different shades for their deck

The nearest lower hull shade is RAL 7016

Today I applied a new wider band of white for the waterline. This is now ready for further painting, I'm quite happy with how it crosses the chines. This will now be a 9mm thick line

Thanks Alan a long way to go but it's in the right place  O0  and I'm now encouraged to finish the hull after my holiday. It will be satisfying re fitting the keel and all the transom parts not to mention the jets  :-))

Andy I have no idea how you manage to keep so many projects on the go with such precision but you do.  Fair play to you mate and as always I'll be watching this;  BTW try and enjoy your holiday  :-)

 {-) {-)  Thank you Mark. You might have noticed during the Riva build that the Shannon has been acting as a bench  %%

I keep being drawn back to this and I'm determined that no other new build will get in the way of completing it this Summer. Painting is the bulk of what is holding the job up and this is weather dependant.

Lol. But can you muster enough enthusiasm to complete it?

Unlikely Charlie given the rewards felt by scratch building without any other people interfering.
I have too many part built models, the MBD is first up next then I have better options to look forwards to.

I'm foiled by the weather so my tug build is defeated until its warm and dry again.


During the past months when my hobby room was overflowing I gave the mast a right wack with an elbow that broke the port side mast stay fixing.


So today I thought I'd kick this thread back off with a repair.


My brackets were styrene T section and I managed to cut a section out to fit a brass angle profile in its place.












So now I have two builds waiting for the SUN.
