Hi
I am building hms surprise as a part work and have come across an instruction to stain some of the parts with mineral pitch and solvent mix
Can anyone clarify exactly what this comprises in buyable terms ?
I can find no other reference anywhere and would like to keep to the instructions as far as possible

Cheers steve

Hi what your looking fore is a very dark brown Asphalt colour. I would paint not stain which would look more authentic

Hi Steve,

If you are leaving it bare un painted then use a dark wood stain from ronseal, no need to thin it down. If your painting her then its Admiralty paints Yellow ochre and Satin Black.

Hi again ,
Thanks for the replies
I am painting the hull with admiralty paints , ocre and a dull black left over from sots build , so I guess it will be dull black with a red detail
I have watched the movie about 5 times over the years and have a copy ,but everything just looks very dark and worn
I suppose it should be navy colours of the time, a la victory .
Thanks for your help
