Those are fantastic, and the texture seems right (not that I know!). Can you rotate the sideways images?

As far as textures go, I thought the hull was a good attempt. The "wheel house" for lack of better term looked a little "prickly".

Plate from the era had slightly irregular surfaces, that looked "hammered" in appearance, or "scaly".. Most noticeable being plate destined for commercial use. Military specs produced higher quality material of better finish.

You might be able to avoid the little prickly look by smoothing over the bumps created.

Just a thought :)

Difficult, since I sold the model. But yes, the wheelhouse did not come out as smooth as I had thought it would.
