Prepare your fleet for the Black Seas with this convenient paint set containing the most favoured colours of the illustrious Royal Navy.
The Royal Navy favoured black for their hulls with one, two or three stripes painted in yellow ochre (described as “baby puke yellow” at the time) which did not necessarily run along the lines of the gun ports. In the 1790s a new chequered scheme was introduced known as the “Nelson checker” which had the addition of painting the outer part of the gun ports black on the yellow stripes. The Masts could be varnished wood, yellow or white with black Tops, Bands and Yards.
