Mr Color Paints for WWII USN Ships

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm just getting into ship modeling and am trying to figure out the right paints to buy for WWII USN ships. After some research, I've found that the Navy standard colors were Ocean Gray (5-O), Navy Blue (5-N), Haze Gray (5-H), Sea Blue (5-S), Light Gray (5-L), and Deck Blue (20-B). I'd prefer to go with Gunze Mr Color, but will consider other brands if there isn't a good Mr Color equivalent. Can anyone recommend the best Mr Color matches? Also, I see that Testors Model Master has these specific colors in their line (5-O is their No. 2157 for example). Are these good matches?
