Hello everyone!
I kept the boat, check the size before I made ...
Wrong aspect ratio!
I printed to A4 Thus, each one smaller.
271 foot = 82.6008 meters / 250 = 33.04 centimeters!
130 percent increase in the document (PhotoShop). Thus, a good ratio. Shipbuilding and start again ....

Hello everyone!

The building is so seamless, the items fit nicely. One side is left open. The guns and the ship's interior is very impressive.

The lifeboats out what color (exterior) ?
Someone can help?
Thank you.
Joe

Hello Joe, your model looks great so far. The ships boats may be white, gray or even black. It depends on where they came from. Pe-war US launches were used, as well as home built copies, but many civilian launches where also pressed into service as well.

Hello!

CT, thanks for the information.
One more question:
the CSS sailors wore what color uniforms?
Grey?
And the officers?

Thank you for your answer

CSN sailors were a mixed lot. Some officers, like those on the raider CSS Alabama were in a position to outfit the crew in "official" uniforms, gray trousers, gray tunic, white color and cuffs, black tie and shoes, gray and white bonnet, and canvas waist belt. However, the inland navy never had is so good. Some "sailors" were army volunteers and would likely have worn whatever CS army uniform they came on board with. A mix of civilian clothing would be seen as well. CS Marine uniforms mirrored that of the army.

The CSN officers would may be have been better uniformed (at their own expense) so single or double breasted gray frocks with turn down colors an shoulder bars and wrist braid would be in order. For summer days wide brimmed felt or straw hats all around.

In short, a crew for the White Hall vessel would have had just about any sort of period clothing in just about any color, augmented with "official" army and navy clothing.

Also, some articles on the subject suggest that as many as 10-20 percent of some CSN crews were black men, and the CS Marine Corp had a number of black faces in their ranks right up to the end surrender at Appomattox. So if your painting figures, do not forget that little detail, so often overlooked today.

Lastly, weapons in an ideal situation would have been navy revolvers, cutlasses, and some kind of breach loading carbine. It is most likely the inland navy had muzzle loading army cast offs or even civilian rifles, although some of the crews would have had navy revolvers. I hope that this helps,

A very minor point ,just in case anyone is depicting officers saluting. The CSN saluted by taking the cap /hat off fully, and not just touching the peak / brim. This was copied from the RN practice of the day. Seamen touched the brim of their hats or caps, if bareheaded "knuckled" their foreheads to officers, again copied from the RN.
The French Navy was the first to formalise the "modern" salute for all that we recognise today in the late 1860's, although removal of caps / hats was common to all when greeting ladies.
