  • PB10 Paint for late WWII Royal Navy Submarines

    I've been working for a while now to create an accurate (well, very, very close to accurate) PB10 model paint for Royal Navy late WWII submarines such as the Improved S class and T class boats. This has been a real challenge for me as the real PB10 was made exclusively from white and ultramarine blue pigments yet ultramarine as a pigment has some long term stability issues and as such it's not generally available as an opacity-assured commercial colourant suitable for use in repeatable model paint manufacture.
    It's taken a ridiculous amount of time, and it's not absolutely bang on the dot, but it's very close and much closer to real PB10 than anything else on the market claiming to be PB10. I'm quite happy with this.
