  • Paint Color Chart of Moebius Seaview- HELP!

    I was recently given the 39" Moebius Seaview model sub kit from a friend that included everything except the Paint Color Chart. Does anyone that has assembled this kit still have theirs? If so, can you please sent me a digital copy? Many thanks!

      Thanks Rick, but I need to the color chart for the control room in particular. I have seen this thread before as it relates mostly to the color choices of the hull.

        I tried a quick search and nothing legible case up. I am sure there has to be a build out there where a copy is at, but you can also use what others have done.

        Have fun.
        My Seaview, you really do not see much of the interior.

        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

            Thanks Trout for taking a shot at this. I scoured the Internet thinking that there had to be an image of this elusive document and there was....nothing. Moebius's website was surprisingly devoid of any supplemental instructions, paint info. etc. I know that this is not rocket science but I was hoping to save some time and unnecessary guesswork by having the paint color chart handy. Thanks again.

              Don't obsess about the exact color of this fictional submarine who's miniatures, over the course of the movie and TV productions, got more varied paint jobs than a New Jersey hooker!

              Enough! Just crack on and finish your project. Look at the pretty pictures so many of us provided you, settle on ones you like, and get on with it!

              Anal retention mind games like this kills accomplishment. Perfect is the enemy of good enough.

              Move on!

                      Thank you Rick. Now I can dispense with my original plans to paint the crew resembling a family of Smurfs and the control room based on The Shire from Lord of the Rings. Didnt seem to fit quite right. Thanks again.

                        It would have fit in with carrot monsters and giant under water spiders
