Hopefully none such exist :big_grin:

It's hard to imagine a grey less appropriate paint for an early 1941 HMS Prince of Wales to be honest although usual escape routes apply - it's your model, do what you like etc etc.


Factually, Tamiya XF-80 is lighter than the lightest camouflage colour ever used by the Royal Navy during WW2, and a green-grey at that. No such paint ever touched HMS Prince of Wales.

Home Fleet Grey was a dark bluish grey.
