As usual – these are actually 1/600…aren't they? Admit it! ;p

Exactly, you got me :)

Really outstanding, as usual. So great to look at. I love the colour shades you have for the sails and, paticularly, the hulls. I tried painting a Spanish three-decker with yellow sides following Berlinguero (e.g. link ), but I didn't get the shade right. Yours look just right. The rigging, ensigns and pennants are superb.

I just came across this painting of the Principe de Asturias attacking the Victory in 1797 which I hadn't seen before: link

Thank you for sharing.

P.S. Where did you get the huge pen? ;-)

Beautiful as always, of course. A quick question about your color schemes for Spanish ships. Have you used any of the drawings from on any of the ships you've done? I found an interesting paint scheme for Rayo on that site.

Thank you Brian, I use this page to see the colour scheme:

I think that the photo that show of the forum "Todo a babor" is the same as that of the author Carlos Parrilla.

Those are fantastic sites, I'm glad you guys posted those links.

Always a pleasure to be able to help as much as I can.

A lot of the pictures do look similar between the two websites, and I think you're correct there. What I found on Todo a babor was a drawing showing Rayo with the upper gundeck strakes painted black, so only two stripes on the hull.


Admittedly, it's his interpretation and the Parrilla painting right below does show her in the "regulation" paint scheme.


I was thinking the version in the first picture might be nice for some variety.

In fact, I read that the boat with 100 guns Rayo participated in Trafalgar painted exclusively black… budget things

Ooh, that's good to know also! I've read some accounts that say Santa Ana was too. Of course, it's possible that the English author of the account I read had mixed up the two.

I have a 112 in reversed colors; that is, the gundecks are black and the strakes between them are yellow. An all black three-decker might be interesting too. Do you remember the source for the Rayo all-black reference?
