finally I'm coming close to finishing my U47(U96). Right now I'm in the phase of weathering the model. The boat is really starting to look 'used'. Just finished larger part of the deck. As far as I know the deck was made of wood, and during maintenance this deck was painted with a preservative that made it look flat black. This preservative stained pretty soon when on open see, so I weathered it like this (wood shining through and stained). Couldn't find out though if the front part of the deck under the chainsaw on the bow and the part of the deck at the stern (after the antenna-supports) was made of wood or metal. So before weathering these to parts: could anyone shine al light on this?
