Painting a Napoleonic Naval Starter Pack from Langton Miniatures

I noticed a Ship on Mike's TV cabinet and thought it would be nice to paint some. He has the British starter pack, so I decided to buy the Spanish starter pack. Francis is in England so he was nice enough to buy some for me and my sister brought it over when she came for a visit.

The starter set comes with four 1:1200 scale ships. If you have never built something at this scale I can tell you it is very hard. One ship basically comes with a hull and three masts. You must then attach the sales to the masts. Hopefully I got them right. Then you must attach strings to the ship and mast and then the rat lines. On a scale of 1 to ten for difficulty, I would say that this is very close to 10.

I used this link to help me along.

This is my first ship. (1st Rate)

Painting Flames of War Rudel Ju87 G Aircraft

Francis gave me a Ju87 G Aircraft last year. 

As can be seen in the following link

Oberst Hans-Ulrich Rudel is mounted in a Ju-87G Stuka. He may join a Panzer Kampfgruppe (page 68 of Desperate Measures) or a Panzergrenadier Kampfgruppe (page 72 of Desperate Measures) for +175 points.

Rudel flew 2530 combat missions claiming at least 2000 targets destroyed. These included 800 vehicles, 519 tanks, 150 artillery pieces, 70 landing craft, nine aircraft, four armoured trains, several key bridges, a destroyer, two cruisers, and the Soviet battleship Marat.

It was not very hard to paint. Basically used Vallejo Luftwaffe Cam green(823) and Reflective Green (890) for the cam and Flat Yellow (953).
