So bit of an open question just wondering what people are thinking in terms of the paint scream for Constitution.

Obviously she is most famous for the black hull and white gun strip that I guess is the classic look and how she started out life and how she is today, but she has had other colours and wonders if anybody was thinking of going beyond the obvious?

In addition to her classic paint arrangement she has been black with a yellow gun stripe, slate grey with a white stripe and even white with a red gun strip, apparently it was reported the ship was much cooler in those colours.

anybody got any firm thoughts as yet?

Not forgetting that you also need to take into consideration which guise - pre-refit or current era, both are quite different and you would need to tie the paint scheme to its era, which if pre-refit, you would also need to make a number of major changes to the model as the model is based on current era black and white guise.

Hi,

It's the black, white, green scheme for me, it's the one that I've seen used the most and is probably the safest option

May.

Its certainly a can of worms if you want it to be BigGrin I think the white with red stripe would look like a hospital ship anyhow.
