【 The Perfect Paint for Your Model Ship 】 These colors are ideal for painting 1/700 Scale Waterline Series models as well as ship models of other scales. Two types of IJN Gray, Kure Arsenal and Sasebo Arsenal, are available as spray paints to enable you to paint your Japanese Navy ship models with ease. For example, IJN Gray (Kure Arsenal) can be used to finish the battleship Yamato, which was built there. IJN Gray (Kure Arsenal) is also available in a jar as an Tamiya Acrylic Paint color (XF-75), which can be used to touch up smaller areas.
 While the 1/700 Scale Waterline Series is a collaborative effort by three Shizuoka-based plastic model manufacturers including Tamiya, these paints can be used to finish ship models by other makers as well. Below you will find a list of WWII Japanese Navy ships which were built at Kure and Sasebo and are currently available in model form from the listed makers. Tamiya paints would be ideal for painting any of these. (Some repainting may be required to depict ships as they appeared after repairs or modifications.)
