Evenin' George, any mid to dark green would do nicely. Suggest a satin / semi matt paint. Something like the Humbrol 131 or 195 in the attached chart. Of course it doesn't have to be the little Humbrol tins (unless you have an airbrush😉) but a similar colour in aerosol, maybe from Tamiya.
Type depends on what was on it before!!
To be on the safe side give it a couple of thin coats of grey primer first.
Flat off with 600 wet & dry then apply the colour coats. E.g. acrylic.
Where on earth, and when, can you sail up there in the frozen North!? 😲
Good luck, and have fun, cheers Doug 😎
