Hi,
Can any member provide a mixing formula using Humbrol paint to obtain G45 colour.

Hi Gra,

Cant tell you how to mix G45 but it is available from White Ensign Models. I see they have a distributor in Australia

3 parts Humbrol 65 + 1 part Humbrol 90. As quoted in Naval Camouflage 1914 - 1945.

Hi,      There was two G45s,      I think the first one was pale blue, and the later one was a stone colour similar to WEMs paint.     I think the RN changed the colour when the pigment became scarse.       Cheers now,  Geoff.

Hi Graham,         That looks like a terrific model you made there Gra.         Very nice paint job.       Have you got any more pics of her?   Cheers,  Geoff.             This was my HMS Onslow (now sold) in WEM paint, RN White and G45.

There was only one G.45. The two different colours someone was thinking of was B.55, pale blue early on and later a pale khaki colour.

Gra.    Excellent model and very neat paint work, I like the two tone gun barrels and torpedo tubes, you got them lines so straight, great.  Regards,  Geoff.
