Individual Paints

Admiralty Paints from Caldercraft have been purposely designed for modellers and the current range is specifically for 17th/18th/19th Century Man-of-War colours. This range of scale paints has been colour matched to the Admiralty colours, as still used on HMS Victory in Portsmouth. Admiralty Paints are now available as acrylic (waterbased) only.
Range also includes a metal primer.
