Royal Navy World War II Ship Colors Set #1
|Date of Review||1999|
|Title||Royal Navy World War II Ship Colors, Set #1|
|Publisher||Snyder & Short|
|Format||Paint chips on heavy card stock|
Snyder & Short Enterprises have released the fourth in their series of WW2 Naval Paint Chips. This installment covers another area poorly documented (at least on this side of the Atlantic) - the colors used by Royal Navy warships during World War 2. This set come on two sheets, with a total of 22 paint chips (!!). With this many colors in Set 1, I can hardly wait to see what Set 2 covers!
These paint chips are a must-have for the warship modeler. They fill a significant void in the color references and I am looking forward to the growing list of offerings! I will continue to share future releases with you as they become available.
You may order your chip sets in the US from Pacific Front Hobbies, Floating Drydock, The Modeler's Boatyard, Colpar Hobbies, Research In Scale, Antheil Booksellers, and Accurate Image Models; in Germany from Christian Schmidt; and in the UK from White Ensign Models; or directly from the author/publishers at www.shipcamouflage.com.
My sincere thanks to Snyder & Short Enterprises for this sample!
