The French Navy Paint Set gives you a selection of the most popular colours used by French vessels; perfect for getting your fleet to the table.
French hulls were usually yellow or red, with black stripes, sometimes with blue details. We have used a light shade of yellow for our French and added an upper blue stripe on most of the ships to unify the look of the fleet. Masts were yellow with white, black or blue Tops, Bands and Yards.
