Am going to paint up 4 of the above for home waters. Near as I can tell the sides would be lt grey/white with the decking grey.
Anyone suggest other schemes?

Royal Navy Scheme E 1943 is what you want for Dog boats operating in Home Waters.

Colours used were:

G45 and white for vertical surface.

B15 for horizontal surfaces.

I'm not sure what your paint brand of choice is, but equivalent Vallejo Model Color codes are:

G45 = 986 'Deck Tan'
B15 = 964 "Field Blue".

Hope that helps.

Thanks guys. Have seen pictures of the sharks mouths. Doesn't appear understated enough to be British!
