I've used a darker shade of mahogany on the flight deck and I have to say it looks a million times better. What do you think?
Sorry to bang on about the ships boats. But I went into Navsource and a few other sites, and none of the shots where you could see the boats did they have canvas covers like you are showing them with.
No problem, but as I said, the drawing is not 100%. Those canvas covers are basically place holders until I get some source material for top down views of USN ship's boats. In the builders plans they are basically voids. Feel free to send me any source material for them, if you have any.
