| Admiralty Paints from Caldercraft are a new brand of paints specifically designed for modellers. |
The first range in this brand of paint has been designed specifically for 17th / 18th / 19th Century Man of War colours.
This range of scale paints has been colour matched to the Admiralty colours, as still used on HMS Victory in Portsmouth.
Unlike other manufacturers, these are not toy paints and have been designed specifically for use on model ships to give consistent coverage and colour.
In order to achieve this, they may contain lead / lead chromate and as such should not be used on childrens toys or surfaces that may be chewed.
Admiralty Paints are touch dry in 2 4 hours and hard dry in 8 16 hours depending upon drying conditions. These times will be extended under cooler conditions and accelerated under warmer conditions.
