The folks at White Ensign Models continue to broaden their ColourCoats paint range. While the German Navy colors have been out on the market for a little while, they continue to add additional colors to the line and have allowed us a closer look.
It should be no surprise that the colors match nicely with the colour chips in the Snyder and Short color references for the Kriegsmarine. The current colors in the range include:
- KM01 - Hellgrau 50
- KM02 - Dunkelgrau 51
- KM03 - Dunkelblaugrau
- KM04 - Schiffsbodenfarbe III Rot 5
- KM05 - Schiffsbodenfarbe III Grau I
- KM06 - Dunkelgrau 2
- KM07 - (Norwegian) Blaugrau Dunkel
- KM08 - (Norwegian) Blaugrau Mittel
- KM09 - (Norwegian) Blaugrau Hell
- KM10 - Schnellbootweiss
- KM11 - Schlickgrau 58
- KM12 - Blaugrau 58.1
- KM13 - Baltic Hellgrau
- KM14 - Baltic Mittelgrau
- KM15 - Baltic Dunkelgrau
These colors will be a great help in getting the look of your next Kriegsmarine project to look right.
You can purchase any of these Colourcoats line directly from the White Ensign Models website (www.whiteensignmodels.com). My sincere thanks to John Snyder at White Ensign Models for these review samples.
