No idea Art. I do not have the paint formula for any other navies nor did I have a chance to mix a sample and compare it to numerous pieces of equipment in a museum like I did with spar.
US Navy Museum at the Washington Navy Yard had quite a few pieces in spar. None were exact matches to each other and the various layers of paint exposed by dings and scratches were all slightly different.
Thanks, Ron. That's a bi help.
A number of navies seem to have used the old "white 'n buff" scheme; do you think the "buff" color was pretty similar among those navies? The Russians seem to have used a more yellow color.
The real name of the color is spar. Closest out of the bottle match is Vallejo 126 goldbrown.
I am looking for an acrylic color match for the superstructure "buff" color used in the great white fleet. Any help with actual paints or FS numbers would be welcome.
