I have a Tamiya Fletcher Class Destroyer and Tamiya has again done the paint ratio deal I do not use Tamiya paints, so I am lost. Can anyone help me with the colors on this thing? Primarily, what color are the decks ( 1 part Hull Red and 2 parts field Blue?)? There are two lines running the lenrth of the deck, one each side of the superstructure that are also a paint mixture (1 part flat black and 1 parts field blue?). I can figure the rest out for myself from their paint codes...

Thanks for any help.

All the decks should be deck blue- a close match would be dark sea blue witha touch of white. The raised areas on the deck are "walkways" and were painted with black/dark gray no skid paint....Mike T
