Looking for a good match for the colour used on Royal Navy vehicles (like Land Rovers) in the 1970s and 1980s. I believe it was called Admiralty Blue or Navy Blue. Thinking Humbrol 15 might be a good match? Any suggestions preferably one of the following (Humbrol, Vallejo, Model Master, GW, Reaper or Tamiya)

I would have thought that any old good dark blue would do because you are going to weather and shade and highlight this vehicle aren't you?

It will get a black wash and some highlighting with white added to the base colour, but I don't plan to do any other "weathering". Humbrol 15 is a dark blue, that looks about right, or maybe TAMIYA AS8 Navy Blue Acrylic Spray Paint.
