I have got Soviet, Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian 1/3000th ships to paint.

Many Thanks

There is a website called Navypedia. It has a subsection called Fighting Ships of the World. You can use it to find what ships each country had in service 60/70s.

Once you have 1 or 2 examples in mind, seek out images for those ships. Wikipedia actually isn't a bad option.

Example: It looks like Norway preferred a color I know as Light Gull Gray.

Watch out on Russian deck colors. They went thru a lot of changes, most pretty weird.

Thankyou Exeter, very good site for coldwar and other ships. Thinking of going down that rabbit hole.
