I agree with John, Appliance White is a very good finish for model boats, probably best over white primer though. It is nominally gloss but is actually a nice sheen finish.

there was another thread were it was revealed that a lot of car specific white paint has a lot of yellow in and some of the more pure white colours has blue in them .

If you want to go satin on the brunswick green then ASK your local Painter and decorator if he has any MATTING AGENT then you can add some a bit at a time...trial and error on this one to matt the paint....you could also ask in your local paint stockist and I don't meant B&Q Wicks etc a proper paint shop


The only other alternative left to you is to ask in B&Q for them to mix a ltr up of satin paint and hand paint your decks with it.... they have a rather large choice of shades of it on their paint swatches...


Carl,   YES it is the carrier and thinner inside the aerosols
