Excellent collection of models (y)

That cinder block background makes me want to suggest that next time they get a black or dark gray curtain behind the table to better show off the excellent paint jobs.

GREEN-GRAY:
5 Parts: TS-66 "Imperial Japanese Navy Gray" (IJN Gray) to
1 Part: AS-14 "Olive Green" (USAF)

BEIGE-GRAY:
3 Parts: TS-66 "INJ Gray" (fortunately once again)
2 Parts: AS-15 "tan" (USAF)

CONCRETE GRAY:
TS-81 straight from the spray can, it goes on that smoothly!

So, HOW do you paint the Flying Sub version Seaview? In simplified terms:

CONCRETE GRAY: Complete underside of the hull, as determined by the extreme edge of the forward "Manta Ray Fins," along side the chines, engine nacelle fins and the skeg (the keel at the extreme rear of the vessel) up to an in line with the side view center line of the engine nacelles

GREEN-GRAY: The nose, the engine nacelles tops, all of the hull sides from the chines up to the decking bottom edge and up to the base of the tail fins.

BEIGE-GRAY: The decking (casing) complete, the top most surface of the hull as between the tail fins, and the very top area of the nose (as if when broached when on the surface, flanking and in line with the decking) the tail fins themselves both inside as well as outside, the diving planes on the sail and the top of the sail.
