Following also the S.R. on a French forum it was noted the other day that Mantua made a small mistake on the decoration of the third deck gun port they are upside down according to the Paris Naval museum model

It’s ok. Like you guys tell us, it’s our build and if we are happy, so be it. Plus I can blame you! The super glue dried right after you told me.

But serious, thanks for sharing. Maybe others will see this as they pursue their nbuildvand make corrections,

it is a nice Gold representation. What kind of leaf you are using (if any)? Did you do a primer first?
Jim, I washed it good with dish soap and water and air dried. I was worried about covering detail so no primer. I used a acrylic paint called Testors Craft Precious Metals Classic Gold. Then washed with a very thin black acrylic.
