These models required a different approach and needed quite a bit more detailed brushwork. I gave them a basic grey undercoat followed by a black wash. I then airbrushed them with white. They look like a uniform grey in the photos but that's just because of my crappy photography. They actually have a bunch of subtle shades.
I took the colour scheme from a painting I saw while decided how I wanted them to look. I think I captured the effect reasonably well.
Toulon & New Orleans Class Frigates.
Berlin Class Cruiser, Seattle Class Fleet Carrier & Moscow Class Heavy Cruiser
I'm going to name the Moscow cruiser, the Marshal Ney. It seems appropriate.
