I was on Secret Projects forum a few weeks ago and they had some photos of this ship being broken-up, very sad to see.
If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

I think I've found the camouflage scheme I want to use.  :thumbsup: BUT.........because I have bad eyesight, it's hard for me to tell if the gray in the pic is actually gray, or if it's a bluish gray, or something else? And I'm not sure if the black is actually black, or if it's a really, really dark blue?
Since I only work with Testor or possibly Vallejo paints, what do others think the closest matches might be for those two brands?

Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

My eyes & monitor give me black or extremely dark grey (charcoal or darker), light grey (similar to USN light gull grey) & a grey-ish blue (similar to USN non-specular intermediate blue).

I am seeing a Black, Light/Mid Blue, and Pale Grey pattern.
Rather like the splinter scheme used on Swedish AF aircraft.
The colours are good but I am not so sure about the actual pattern.
How about a pixelated pattern along those lines and those colours?

My Sea Shadow model project is now on hold as I can't seem to make up my mind on what colors to use.  :banghead: I'll eventually come back to this maybe later in the Spring.

If I may chip in here and suggest Midnight Blue for the dark part, Russian Intermediate blue for the mid tone and a light blue gray for the liter bits. I reckon you'd be best off making a custom mixture for that last bit.
I'm looking forward to the day when you've decided as it's an awesome scheme and I think it would suit this ship nicely. Be fun masking though!
