    B and Q mix RAL colours. I used RAL7011 in my cockpit. Had it mixed in my local B&Q. Get a tester pot mixed first (about 2)

    Just go to a local car paint specialist like autopaint international or parrys, there should be someone local to you.

    I went on Friday and picked up some boeing brown and RAL7011 to test a few panels ive made. (which are awsome!!)

    Failing that, let me know your location and i will find someone near you, if not i can send some to you

    I am going to use

    RAL7043 for the dark grey panels on the 737.

    and

    RAL7040 for the light grey panels on the 737.

    This is what hispapanels are using so i assume its close.

    Thanks
    David

    Ok,

    I have been told that the blue/grey used on 737 stuff and old boeings is RAL7011.

    For a bit of fun I decided to order some 7011 paint and have a go at making a few panels for the 737, the photo below is one of my panels done in 7011 laid across a real 737 part (keep in mind its an old panel, probably 15+ years old). I have to admit it is very close, however to match the real part 7011 needs to be a little darker, however the blue content is spot on. Another thing you should know is that i have several real 737 pieces, when all put together not a single piece match, this is even worse on the Boeing brown panels, the difference in colour between each panel (and even from the same panel supplier) is quite frankly staggering.



    All i know with the Boeing brown (light brown used on panels) is boeings own spec 8328, testors #2008 RAW (information used from Mikes flightdeck http://www.mikesflightdeck.com/center_pedestal_4.htm ) however i could not find any reference to it here, so I took a selection of real panels and had there colour matched.
