Folks.... just getting to the fun part with my U-boat: the weathering. I've never done a ship of any sort before, let alone one that's been in the north Atlantic for ten weeks. Real ships are few and far between here in the middle of England, and I have no colour pictures of U-boats. Sooo... any help with the following would be much appreciated:1) What do "salt stains" look like? Where do they appear -- like a tide mark on bits that get wet rarely, a crust on the weather side or what?
2) I can clearly see the diesel exhaust staining on some B+W pix, but does it stop in a hard line at the water line, or a softer edge becuase of the trim of the boat changing and the water surface being wavy?3) Do you get rust streaks from all the drain holes or just a few?
4) Is it likely that you'd get rust streaks fro the long slot above the saddle tanks?5) Would there be patches of damaged paint and rust on the conning tower/upperworks etc?
Many thanks in advance for any guidance...
Best regards, Matt
