Lt. Peter Scott had followed the works of American naturalist Thayer, and subscribed to Thayer's ideas about blending in to nature. Peter Scott Blue, sometimes called Western Approaches Blue, was introduced when Scott was recruited to assist with camouflage. Western Approaches schemes were intended to counter the U-Boat thread on North Atlantic convoys. The colours were very pale and intended to blend in with an overcast horizon in low-light. Decks would be dark grey. N.b. most Flower Class Corvettes had black underwater hulls,

Please Note - We are unable to post Colourcoats Paint outside of Mainland UK. 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.
