Kaiser-class: Battleship row

For one reason and another I haven't had much time to spare lately, but I did get some paint on the new 1/2400 Kaiser-class pre-Dreadnoughts and the trio of merchant ships.

Five little battleships, all in a row. The orange object in the background is part of an upcoming project.

It doesn't show so much in the light, but the battleships have had a wash of black paint. Next step will be to put them on transparent bases and add name tags. After that they'll join the fleet.

The merchant ships will follow. Why do civilian trading vessels have such boring hull colours? It's probably due to costs, but they do look drab. I'll see what I can do with funnel colours, and maybe a cheeky band of bright colour around their scuppers.
