Their light sea grey for the hull and vertical surfaces is anything but. It's a pukish grey-green colour reminiscent of modern RCN colours. The deck colour is a medium to light grey as well. My impression from pictures on the net are that the hull should be a light grey (i.e. no green tinge) and the deck should be either semtex or dark grey. I feel ripped off and ruined a perfectly good kit (albeit only $12 Cdn).
Can anyone provide me with directions on how to proceed with the correct colours on a second E Class destroyer I've got. Ideally, and ironically, i'd like to stay with Tamiya due to their ready availability locally but Humbrel and ColourCoat will do as well.
Thanks for listening to my tale of woe.
