James Duff: How's this for an HMS Hood 1941 Color?
I just rechecked email correspondence - I did provide them a colour profile for HMS Hood with recommended paints based upon my own line drawing, but I didn't colour in their 3D model export line drawing for them which I have done previously for a couple of other models.
This is what I sent them, and I suggested that our US04 5-D Dark Gray might be in the right ballpark for the Peacock & Buchan's anti-fouling grey based on how it appears next to Home Fleet Grey which we have a good understanding of:
I also wrote a blog post last week about the anti-fouling paint with a further graphic giving an idea of how the layers of paint would have looked on the lower hull.
Good luck with the model.
