Check out www.alnavco.com. They have many painting suggestions for 1200 scale..... One clearly requires better eyes than my old ones, that's for sure. Also try naval-art.com, they have lots of, well, naval art....

Glad you're getting new glasses. Have you one of those fixed magnifying glasses on a stand to view these- and rock stteady hand eye coordination as well? I suspect that you'll end up painting them a uniform grey and then just highlighting turrets and stuff. I haven't even tried to paint mine and I would really like to hear (or even see) how they turn out.
