MRP paint recommendations for ships?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend good Mr Paint (lacquer colors only, not acrylic) to use for ships?


I have the Hasegawa USS Gambier Bay on the way along with the Tamiya Mogami seaplane cruiser and USS New York (LPD-21 not the battleship) & the Independence LCS trimaran.  The Gambier Bay camo colors are intriguing to me, I see there are two Mr Color paint sets that would be great but they're sold out everywhere save for a massively overpriced set on ebay.


I'm not worried about the colors below the waterline of these ships, only what's visible above the waterline.


Thanks for any help with this!

Have you checked for the individual colors on spruebrothers?  They received a huge shipment about 1 week ago.  Filled several back orders I had for various aircraft. 


www.hobbyworld-usa.com may have them, but I would call him first.

Thanks guys. I’m aware of the Sovereign line but I really dislike painting with enamels. I’ll see what I can sort out for paint mixes with existing colors.
