Military Ships TCP-1000 to TCP-1199 Series


In 2017 Tru-Color Paint started to release a large variety of paints for military ships. These paints cover the period from the 1930’s to the modern era and include nearly every color used by the U.S. Navy from 1939 through 1946 in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters of Operation. Imperial Japanese Naval (IJN) colors (10 most common colors) will be released over 3 months starting in February, 2018. The Kreigsmarine (German) Navy will be added in 2019.  All of the naval colors, regardless of country on whose ships the colors were used, fall into the TCP-1000 to TCP-1199 series of paints.

Many camouflage colors were developed throughout these years (and even during WWI) by the U.S., British, Japanese and German Navies to help “hide” the ships from submarines and air planes. Many “dazzle” patterns were developed by these navies in an attempt to “fool” enemy ships. These schemes changed over time. In the Pacific Theater both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps were more concerned with landing craft, PT boat and other small craft camouflage used in landings and support roles.
Nearly all of the paints developed in this section of the military product line were matched to color chips supplied by Snyder and Short. We are grateful to Randy Short for supplying the mounted color chips as well as additional chips and information not part of the charts. For modern ship colors Federal Standard 595B or 595C color chips (as appropriate) were used in matching the paint. Several colors were developed with help from experts in their field.

All of the paints in the TCP-1000 to TCP-1199 series are designed to be air brushed directly from the bottle with little or no thinning at 28-35 PSI. If thinning is wanted, we recommend that the modeler use TCP-015, Thinner, or TCP-310, Retarder, as they will not affect the intended finish or drying time of the paint. The finish will be what the color chip it was matched to calls for.
By February 2018 nearly all of the Atlantic Theater U.S. Naval colors will be released (TCP-1000 to TCP-1022) as well as all of the modern colors, TCP-1042 to TCP-1045). The many Greens and Browns used in the Pacific Theater will start shipping in March 2018. The ten (10) primary colors used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) will start shipping in February, 2018. Note that the Japanese Navy did not camouflage many of their ships.
No dates have been set for the start of the Royal Navy colors used in WWII, although some of the colors have already been matched in our modern laboratory to color charts supplied by Snyder and Short.

All of the Tru-Color Paint colors manufactured in the above series are available in 1 oz. and 2 oz. size bottles from your favorite hobby shop, online store and from us directly. A complete listing plus an order form is part of this section for your use. If you have any questions regarding these products, or anything else about Tru-Color Paint, please do not hesitate to ask or consult the FAQ section on this website. As with all Tru-Color Paint products the entire military series is manufactured and stocked in Phoenix, AZ.

We look forward to serving the paint needs of the military modeler.
