Royal Navy World War II Ship Colors, Set #1

Royal Navy World War II Ship Colors, Set #1 Review

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review 1999 Title Royal Navy World War II Ship Colors, Set #1
Publisher Snyder & Short Format Paint chips on heavy card stock
MSRP (USD) $20.00


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

My sincere thanks to Snyder & Short Enterprises for this sample!
