What are folks in the US using, for navy colors> I need Thayer and deck blue. Are those colors from Scalecoat, or Model Master close enough?

Jim, Colourcoats are available again from Sovereign Hobbies
HERE is the article with the US stockist.

Or as Dave has said use the Lifecolor US Navy sets, I also believe Testors does the colours but as they are not available this side of the pond I can't help you with them.
