    The RAF colours are still available as they are current British Standard BS381C colours. Per A.705 issued 28/8/47, the decks are 632 Dark Admiralty Grey and the superstructure, deck fittings are 631 Light Grey. Phoenix Paints in the UK used to be able to supply these colours in Humbrol sized tinlets and larger cans too. Xtracolor did them too, Also any paint shop should be able to mix those colours.

    Very colourful GD47, but wrong era.๐Ÿ˜‰
    As far as I know that yellow was only used, very briefly, on the whale-back rescue launches (HSL) very early in WW2. It was dropped pretty damn quick, and replaced with grey, when they started pilot rescue operations in the channel and realised that bright yellow made them easy targets for Luftwaffe Stukas and JU88s.๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ
    The Fireboat /Crash Tender came along about ten years later and was much smaller than the HSL, 46' as opposed to 63'.

    I am at last finishing my 46Ft Crash tender and i would like to confirm the colour scheme of my boat. In the pictures it looks black sides on hull and white on the superstructure and the deck i think is grey. I have been told by one of my club members the hull is a dark blue is he correct?
    Looking forward to your replies thank you.๐Ÿ‘
