RAF Blue Matt Pre 1956. RAF Blue Matt Pre 1956 was the standard colour, however, the new RAF Blue Grey gloss started to filter in from around 1953. RAF Blue Matt is a traditional single part Synthetic Coach Enamel paint used by the Royal Air Force. This was employed for many years for the majority of their vehicles and equipment up until 1956 approximately. It is a lighter, brighter blue than the later RAF Blue Grey and is a perfect Coach Enamel for the discerning restoration specialist or enthusiast. In addition to this, the later gloss finish was also being used, but there is no definitive change over date.
