Information Sovereign Hobbies Colourcoats 1943-1945 Royal Navy B&G Series Colourset.
During 1942 the Royal Navy's understanding of camouflage effectiveness improved rapidly, and it became clear that in order that the camouflage paints be used correctly that the fleet, uneducated in colour science, be more readily able to understand the properties of the paints. Tone was more important than exact hue. The B&G series were promulgated in Admiralty Fleet Order 2106 in April 1943 and replaced all exterior paints used hitherto. G10 and G45 were however exactly the same as Admiralty Pattern 507A and 507C respectively. In late 1944 it became clear that G20 was the only paint in the series which required Ochre Yellow oil paste stores to make. Since tone was very much more important in camouflage patterns than hue, AFO 3545 promulgated B20 in place of G20. B20 was simply an equal parts mix of B15 and B30, thus eliminating the need to store the Ochre Yellow pigment unique to G20. G20 would remain available for the remainder of the war for use where preferred, however, being of equal tone to B20, one would not expect to see G20 and B20 used simultaneously on the same ship.

Please see our "Where to buy" for international orders.
Paint and thinners classify as flammable liquid and can only be sent via our specialised contract to Mainland UK as they are dangerous goods. The cost of this is rather high per parcel so we have a minimum paint/thinners order of 6 tins/bottles to allow us to reduce the postage cost to our customers.
The minimum order is 6 tins of paint or bottles of thinners or a combination of both. 1 bottle of thinners counts as 1 tin. The paint can be a combination of any colour and tins within coloursets count as individual tins. If you require any help with this please contact us.
We can send out orders of less than 6 tins/bottles but they incur an extra postage charge. Please contact us if you wish to order less than the minimum.
