|Ship modelers can be the most obsessive when it comes to accurate paint colors. That is why Snyder and Short Enterprises have designed this set for the ship modeler. This set covers the Japanese Navy in WW2. While they didn't use camouflage to the extent that the US Navy did, they did have some distinct paint colors including a slightly different shade for each of the four ship yards. The set includes the greens used on late war Aircraft carriers. Also included are Deck Tan and Linoleum. The latter is not a paint color but the molded color of the Linoleum used by the Japanese Navy.|
|This set contains 10 chips on a single sheet and covers
the following colors:
|These paint chip are actual painted patches using real
paint, not simply printed colors. Printing technology today falls short
of being able to consistently match colors, so this is the best method
to reproduce the colors. The cards themselves are 8-1/2" x 11" heavy stock
with individual colors painted on self adhesive patched that are then applied
to the card. I keep mine in sheet protectors in a binder for handy reference.
While some modelers may argue that you need to incorporate "scale effect" in you paint scheme, you will still need a starting point and these chips provide just that.
|This set is available directly from Snyder and Short via the ShipCamouflage.com website or from well stocked hobby shops for around $14.00.|
