I take it from your post that you are asking about H.M.S Victory's colour scheme ?

Its been changed in recent times to a pinkish colour which was the original colour of the ship.

Here's a photo of me on deck of Victory next to a cannon carriage and you can see the pink colour.

I visited her last year and although the colour may be authentic I can't say I'm a lover of it.

I took this photo on the quayside which explains the debate about colour -

I also put a lot of Victory photos in the 'Photos of real ships for reference' section on this forum which might help you in your build. Regards.
