I have a airbrush but carefully brush painted the decks on 'Smit Ierland'

Here is a link to the real tug to compare the colour  http://media.shipspotting.com/uploads/photos/rw/483608/Ship+Photo+SMIT+IERLAND.jpg

Very difficult getting a green paint from commercial dealers as, quote  " but Sir, they don't make green cars these days".  I always have this problem.  If you find a make of car then please let us all know.

If your worried about leaving streak marks on your deck,use a make up brush.
My missus was going to throw out her old (but unused) ones.
They are very fine hair,and leave no streaks.
I use humbrol matt 30
