Hi, can anyone tell me what is the alternative colour for teak. Humbrol dont seem to do a teak any more. Thanks, Pete

Weathered teak is a silvery grey colour. The Humbrol colour was described as 'Deck Bleached Teak' and a sort of sandy beige colour.

The decking on HMS Belfast is light grey with a hint of light brown/beige.

Thanks for that but to save mixing colours, is there a manufacturer that produces teak colour paint. Peter
