Re: Best Tamiya paint for USN deck Grey 1960s
As far as the 1960's the navy had 2 deck paints. "Deck A and Deck B " paints. The trouble is what Federal Standard 595 -595A numbers were these paints? I don't know. Life color paints has released a "modern "USN paint set covering from 1950 to current moment .This is a option.
I'm restoring some old Adams class destroyers in 1/700 to go with the new Trumpeter Intrepid and was wondering what the best Tamiya equivalent is for the dark grey decks? I'm planning on using XF-20 for the Haze Grey but is there a good approximation for the deck? is XF-24 too dark? I'm aware there isn't likely to be an exact match.
Thanks for any advice.
