A'hoy modellers. I've started a Revell kit of the RMS Queen Mary, and I wish to do her in her wartime guise as a troop-carrier.
But what is slowing me down is that I have no idea what her decks were. 
Can anyone help with a colour and/or a reference?
TIA.  George (in Aust), out....................

Un-maintained, teak decks weather to grey.

That'll do.  I reckon that I'll go with the wet light-brown (as it will be a little more interesting alongside grey warships).
Many thanks, Guys.
