    Hi Pete.
    I've not got any Humbrol 88 'Deck Green' to try out, it doesn't seem to have the same 'punch' as the Emerald green or the Halfords colour, but I'll spray on the Halfords stuff and make a judgement call then.
    Rob.

    That seems a close colour Rob, but I still think Humbrol 88 is a very close match, have you tried it?


    Cheers, Pete

    Hi Rob,
    I think those colours look about right.
    It is always a little difficult to see how it will look using colour swatches,

    I am sure that when she is painted she will look great.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    While in Halfords picking up some primers and the VW Orange paint I found a green textured
    paint on the shelf.
    Thought...that's got to be worth a try ๐Ÿค” so I bought some and did a swatch test.
    The textured finish is perfect and the colour is pretty close to what I'm looking for so I'll use that and if it's still not quite right I'll overspray with some Emerald Green (RAL6001) which is the closest to what I think the colour should be.
    I did a Photoshop test using the colour coordinates of both and they look just about right ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

    Hi Pete.
    Thanks for your observations but I'm still no nearer to conclusively identifying the colour I'm looking for but I'm reasonably sure that Semtex/Cemtex is
    not it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.
    I need to go to Halfords soon to get some VW orange paint for the cabin so I'll see what green paints they have at the same time.
    Rob.

    Have been reading a 1939/45 RN book on destroyers, and they mention the deck colour as CEMTEX and not the way we say semtex, any ideas?๐Ÿ˜Š

    Extract from a mail from James Duff concerning revisions to RN colours in the Colour Coats range. (Sovereign Hobbies).
    "Deck coatings, and particularly Semtex is more complicated than is shown here - there were at least 3 brands of latex based trowel-on deck coatings of which Semtex was one brand, and each brand was a different colour."

    The make it go bang stuff was developed late 50s in Czechoslovakia I believe.
    Named after the place it was made from 1964. Colour is usually red/brown or orange/red.

    More info on the Semtex green paint for modellers (unless you like trowelling on your deck paint๐Ÿ˜) is here
    https://www.google.com/search?q=Semtex+paint&client=firefox-...
    Much too dark for the Pilot Boats.
    Cheers All.๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Yeah I remember Semtex it was almost like hard rubber and was usually very dark grey - almost black or a drab mustard colour, it was used to deaden sound and prevent sparks, normally where heavy items were being moved or at risk of being dropped, unlike the modern semtex which would have quite the opposite effect if anything heavy and metal was dropped on it.

    Hi Rob,

    Humbrol deck green looks pretty close to the Royal Navy deck green, (at least from what I remember - late 70's) , the Humbrol is perhaps a little darker, but it's there or there abouts.
