Just finished her up a couple days ago. The deck color is fossil almond and red and black are gloss black. All rustoleum rattle can, no airbrush btw. 

 

  

Nice work.  I really like the "fossil almond" for the deck. 

     I have been a "Rustoleum rattle can", (and others brands), user since I restarted this Hobby.  Only just started to use an air brush this year.  It was worth it as the Spray can paint tended to cover and hide details where the Airbrush is more controlled for the amount of paint applied. 

  Thanks for posting the Pics too.

          Nino.

P.S.  I still like the Spray Cans for the Big areas like Hull and other flat/detail-less surfaces.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, revell did a good job with the kit overall considering the age of the molds. If anyone is considering doing this ship, keep a pin vise handy :) I sure hope Long Beach restores her to what she deserves to be, so far they did good with the funnels.

GAD !

    Hey there! Nice job on her. Now the reason I started with Gad is this .She reminds me of a Photo I have of the Lusitania! Very nicely proportioned but Narrow as an Armed Cruiser or Troop ship should be. Length and width= one fast sucker when all boilers are lit off !

  Lusitania was known to have had two Boilers shut down to conserve coal . Her sister ( Mauretania) got oil fired later. They rolled fairly spritely. The Mary and Elizabeth not as much .Anyway even without the masts, Looks Good !

    Look at her and think They were the one time epitomy of Sea voyaging .We had two, But the United States and the America couldn't fit into the " Cruise " trade . Two, Three or Four stacks. Regal and Impressive. Big girls they were.

 Today's so called ships are but a travesty on a Barge to me . Sorry, I did twelve years on the bridge of a B/P ship .A Real Ship!     T.B.

Nice model, and good job taking the time to figure out how to post pics.

Having wandered the her decks twice now over a few decades (along with all the other silly tourists), looking at your model brings back some nice memories. Thanks.

Just finished her up a couple days ago. The deck color is fossil almond and red and black are gloss black. All rustoleum rattle can, no airbrush btw. Sorry to all the rigging purists, the masts looked so cheap so I left them off and rigging subsequently as I think it looks cleaner.
