Model Shipway Paint Equivalents

Recommended Posts



Does anyone know what these Model Shipways' Syren colors, hull/spar black and bright red would be in either Model Masters, Floquil or any other good quality acrylic paint that is still available? I realize that floquil is no longer in business but some colors are still available online.


Thanks, Mike

The Badger Modelflex Marine Acrylic's have good matches. 

Hull Black ((#16-412) is a flat black - pure black. 

Either Windjammer Red (#16-424) or Navy Red (#16-402) would be close. 

For a slightly grayish black Wrought Iron Black (#16-413) is good for representing blackened metal and is also a good hull color - I use it a lot for hulls of larger models. 

Ages of Sail (an advertiser here) carries the Badger paints.
