Deck painting

Recommended Posts

There are many different techniques. They generally start with a light wood color for the whole deck and then various techniques to vary the colors (just using washes, masking planks with itty bitty bits of tape and overpainting many times, highlighting individual planks with colored pencil, so on). However these are mostly for battleships whose decks are weathered and more built for practicality than looks. The Titanic's deck is remarkably uniform in color with wood that had a very tight grain so there isn't much you can do at that scale. If the model has raised planking detail you might try picking it out with a near-black.


There are many period pictures of the deck, and you can take some hints from the Titanic movie as well.
