Paint Equivalents

While there are some colours we don't specifically produce, you will find equivalents among the Colourcoats range:
Naval Colours
JMSDF Grey – use US28 Neutral #27 Haze Gray.
JMSDF Deck Grey – use US31 Neutral #17 Ocean Gray.
Modern German Navy Grey – use ACRN04 Medium Sea Grey.
Modern German Deck Grey – use ACRN02 Extra Dark Sea Grey.
Grey Semtex – use M16 Modern RN Deck Grey, Light.
Tan Semtex – use ARI01 Israeli Sand Grey.
Based on Alan Raven's descriptions, we've already got paints available that will work for the British merchant ship greys used in WW2--Merchant Ship Standard (MSS) and Merchant Ship Dark (MSD) in the form of our late-war USN neutral greys. For MSS use US31 #17 Neutral Ocean Grey--just a bit lighter than AP 507B Admiralty Medium Grey; for MSD use US35 #7 Neutral Navy Grey--about the same tonal value as AP 507A Admiralty Dark Grey. Light MSS was a neutral grey of 40% reflectance, therefore use US33 #37 Light Gray.
