I have edens USS Ohio, and have the internals finished for the most part.

How would you weather a modern day sub's panelling without it looking too tackey ? Does anyone have any decent pictures of the subs tile close up ?

Any hints would be apprecited

I hope to christ this works , alright Chief, put us on the roof .

Hi CoB

Being an Ohio scratch bulder, I have collected A LOT of images on the web, and I do have a couple of the hull close up, showing a little of the weathering. Please send me your mail adr. to and I'll reply with the images.
I havn't put'em on my own website yet, but I think they'll get there eventually. :-)
Yours Sincerely, Robert Holsting, Denmark

Dave Merriman's video "Weathering RC subs" video is just what you need. He weathers an Ohio so it looks like the real thing!
