A high-quality semi-gloss RAF Night Black acrylic or enamel paint for scale models and historical miniatures.
MAP Night Guide:
- MAP Night paint was made with carbon and ultramarine pigments, giving it a dark black and blue color.
- The Temperate Land camouflage scheme of Dark Green and Dark Earth, widely used to paint RAF aircraft in 1938-1940, called for Night to be used for the port side under surfaces, while the starboard side was to be painted white.
- MAP Special Night color was used to paint the undersurfaces of British night-operating aircraft during World War II. RAF night fighters were entirely painted in Special Night in 1940-1943.
- From mid-1942, British-built aircraft got their cockpits painted with Night, at least the upper parts. Spitfires had Grey-Green cockpits until the end of World War II. After WWII, Spitfires also received Night-painted cockpits.
- Night was used extensively for painting propellers and spinners, markings, stencils, etc on WW2 RAF/FAA aircraft.
- MAP Night was used to paint the undersides of RAF bombers that were to be sent to the Pacific for operations against Japan (the so-called Tiger Forces). This camouflage was originally intended to use white to paint the upper surfaces. White was later replaced with Medium Sea Grey.
- MAP Night, then BS 642 Night was used to paint radomes, radio transparent parts, tail fins, and anti-glare panels on RAF and FAA aircraft after World War II until 1990.
- BS 642 Night was widely used to paint aircraft cockpits until the 1960s when it was replaced by BS 632 Dark Admiralty Grey for this purpose.
- BS 642 Night, like its predecessor MAP Night, was used extensively for markings and stencils on RAF and FAA aircraft after WW2.
