    Boeing grey paint substitute

    Hi Guys

    Found some paint that is soooo close to Boeing grey that I thought I should share it with you.

    It is made in the UK by Crown and the paint colour is Herringbone. (sorry overseas guys - you might be able to get it, but not sure).

    It is so close to the colour of my MIP that you would be hard pushed to tell the difference. Easy to get when you need to touch bits up as it blends really well.

    Brushes wash out in water too!

    Rgds
    Richard

    here's another one as well, again from B&Q in the UK, but as it's made in the EU
    you may just find it in your local DIY superstore

    Hi Guys,

    Correct me if i am wrong but isnt the Boeing color RAL7011?..

    Anyway that is the color i am going for since i already bought 3mm PVC plates in the same color code.

    Re: Boeing grey paint substitute

    In many paint stores in the US, you can have paint mixed to match a specific color sample. Of course this lmits you to mostly water based paints as oi based is going away in the US. There are also a number of ways to spray water based paint to get the gloss of spray paint.
