USAF Grey
« on: August 11, 2017, 04:49:08 am »
Howdy all.

I have just nabbed a Gundam type model on Ebay (been toying with getting one for ages and got a MACROSS : VF-1J BATTROID VALKYRIE GERWALK MODEL KIT) and it looks sweet and should be with me by the weekend.

I plan on doing it in the grey you see a lot of modern military aircraft (specifically US Forces) as I love that colour. Does anyone know what it is and where I can get airbrush ready paint of that colour?

When I did my DOJ Batmobile I used Vallejo Gunship Grey but I think this is a bit dark for my cunning plan.

Any pointers would be great and thanks for any help.

All searches I do keep leading to Vallejo! But I did find an USAF Gray Schemes which have a variety of grays from the 70's to present. Here is a link I found

Thanks Mike.

I think I will just get the whole box set as the colours I don't use will be handy one day. :)

Vallejo model air is readily available over here Iain, though you probably know that!

My LMS stocks it as does a regional department store called Boyes and there is always eBay!!

I've got an app on my phone called iModelkit which lists various paint manufacturers lists and does a crude cross reference between manufacturers.  Think there is a full version you pay for and a lite version that's free!

Thanks Warren.

The model arrived today and it's quite small but looks like it will be a fun wee build. I think I will get that USAF box set once I get this damn Star Destroyer finished.
