      Good afternoon everyone,

      I'm trying to source a blue paint appropriate to paint wooden boxes British 'ordnance blue', perhaps over a basecoat. I haven't had any luck finding some in my local Home Depot, Rona, or Canadian Tire. I was wondering what make and colour was commonly used by members of this forum and where you bought it?

      As always, thank you for your time.

      Pvt. Sculthorp, 104th Rgt.

      If you wanted to be really precise, you could try to colour match this canteen: http://images.ourontario.ca/niagarahs/71283/data?n=1 Chris McKay
