    Naval box colour request

    Do any members know the correct B.S. yellow/buff colour used on British WW2 Naval boxes.
    Looking to repaint a replacement part on a C102 box.
    Thanks in advance.

    Forgot to mention, B&Q will mix you "Valspar" paint to BS381C

    Thanks, that's good to know. I've found model paints (Tamiya XF60 & Xtracolor X029) which are apparently matches to BS381.
    I'll try those first (possibly with a little white added) and see how they match with the original.
    Thanks again.
