You don't need ex navy paint for a model. The RN uses British Standard colours which any paint shop can mix for you.

Phoenix Paints the model railway people also do it in tin sizes down the the Humbrol size tinlet.

Shipside grey since 1978 has beenBS381C 676 Light Weatherwork Grey.

Brain fade, 1978 is when decks went from Green to grey. 676 came into use in 1967.
