I might bring it along on Sunday, too busy bricklaying at the moment.

Scored, thin card strips to represent large slates on a heavier card underframe.

I sorted through my paints, looking for grey/ slate grey - here are all the greys that I found - i have not included the Tamiya here.
37 I think.
I bet Haddock has more shade of grey, maybe Chris too,

      Just had a count up, I make it 28 but I haven't counted Lifecolour or AK Interactive naval colours. Some look more like light blue, some of the blues are really grey and some greens could be grey.
      I've now ignore the name on the bottle and just look at my paint chips and their numbers.
Don't get me going about Naval colours, it's a minefield.
Haddock.

I have 27 just in the Mr Hobby paints. Like Haddock there are some blus and greens that are close. I have not gone through the Humbrol enamels.

More brickwork, I am unhappy with the extension at the rear so may change it.

The roof looks like WWI lozenge camo. Another great build coming together.
