    Hello

    I have been researching this model sold by mount fleet models.

    I see a few members there in the U/K have built it and I would like to know what colour green was used?

    https://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=58530.0;attach=176224;image

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi George,

    I have seen several of these models at UK events but I don't know what actual green paint has been used.

    Adam at Mountfleet will probably be able to give you an idea - he researches his models well.

    The colour of submarines is a perennial problem for modellers. The fact that most photos are black & white doesn't help.

    They were painted to suit the waters they would be used in and local conditions (what paint was in store!?) often dictated.

    Chariots were used extensively in the Med but also in Norway and the Indian ocean. So blue, grey/black and sappy green may be potential choices.

    But courage! The modeller is unlikely to be challenged by the "rivet counters" but let's hope some one here has better information.

    David
