You kinda answered your own question. Also it's how f2p games work. To understand why it's like this tou have to understand where the money for f2p games comes from.
70% of a f2p games income comes from just 10% of the player base. So you have to keep in the back of your.mind that just because it's there dose not mean your are supposed to have it.
To be fair to them, they do do pain packs every now and then where you can buy a coating for all your ships for something like 1000gp. That not a bad price.
Well of course they need money somehow. I get that. I'm just trying to say that this isn't the way to go about it. Imagine if you purchased a hero ship but could only use it in certain game modes and if you wanted to use it in other game modes you had to buy it again.
My point is that it's basic logic that a purchased paint scheme should be available on all ships because naturally people will often want their ships of a fleet to have the same color, and otherwise it would be very expensive. If you bought the hunter pack for example you could only purchase two paint schemes anyway and that's not a lot, especially if you could only use those paints on a few of your ships.
If the devs want more ways to make money then go right ahead but they should do something that's more rational such as adding more hero ships or a new category of cosmetics.
