Dear Captains

Please post beautiful pictures of the Indiaman color paint schemes.

The ship is a reconstruction based on Chapman's Indiaman blueprints.
Paintings, Drawings or Collection scale models photos are welcome.

"Jacob van Strij - Het jacht van de kamer Rotterdam begroet een Oostindiëvaarder."
Jacob van Strij (painter) - The yacht of the chamber of Rotterdam greets an Eastindiaman.

Judging from these pictures and paintings I think that the paint scheme of the Amsterdam ship at the museum isn't too far off:

Personally I'd say that that what is brown painted there, is just blank wood on the originals. Maybe treated with oils to make it last longer.
