Paint colours for modern Dutch, German & Italian Warships

Post by MichaelB »

In the last week or so, I've been asked for modern colours for various navies. To make life easier, I've summarised each one on a pdf which can be downloaded.

Dulux have said that their shops can mix these colours and have provided formulae to support this. So you should in theory be able to get this from any supplier of Dulux paints. A word of warning, different paint companies use not only different codes for their tints but some use different tints. So a green tint from one manufacturer might not be the same colour as from another manufacturer.
