Hello,

I am working on an Italian ship model, 1:350 scale, and I recently bought a set of Regia Marina paints. The descriptions are in Italian and I would really like to know what they say so I know what paint goes to what part of the ship:

UA 613 Grigio cenerino scarfo, sovrastructure ed armament (Light grey).
UA 614 Grigio scuro bande mmetiche irregoluri sur UA 613.
UA 615 Grigio Piombo Ponte, ponti e zoccolo paratie verticali.
UA616 Rosso Mattone, Bande di identificazone.
UA617 Verde Scuro Antivegetavio carena –opera viva.
UA618 Legno ChiaroTeack Ponti in legno.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Chris

A little rough around the edges I'm afraid, but try these;-

UA613 Heron Gray, Superstructure & Armament.

UA614 Dark Gray, Irregular Camouflage Stripes Over UA613.

UA615 Lead Gray, Bridge & Vertical Sides.

UA616 Red Brick, For Identification Bands.

UA617 Dark Green, Hull Below The Waterline (Anti-fouling).

UA618 Light Wood Teak, Wooden Bridge (Decking).


I hope this helps.

Regards
