Hello folks,

for those interested, I compared several Testors Model Master US Navy colors to reference paint-chips from Snyder & Short. The following original colors were tested:

5-P Pale Gray
5-L Light Gray (Early 1941)
5-H Haze Gray
5-O Ocean Gray (Late 1941)
5-N Navy Blue
20-B Deck Blue (Rev. 1942)

Results are...astounding. Btw, I have included the 5-N and 20-B from AK Interactive, just to compare.
The only little drawback is that Testors don't offer the 1943 version of the 5-L. Anyway, I consider the result awesome.
