The US Navy Paint Set gives you a selection of the most popular colours used by vessels of the burgeoning nation. Get your fleet table ready!
During and immediately after the American War of independence the colours of the hulls would either be quite generic like wood or white with black stripes or would follow the British colours. Later on, they started adopting a black hull with white stripes, with black or white masts and wood, white or black Tops, Bands and Yards.
