    737 panel color

    im trying to print panels for a 737 and was wondering what numbers to set the printer to. Right now I have it set to R=102 G=102 and B=102. Does anyone know the correct color settings for the gray panels color?

    Re: 737 panel color

    Hi, quite interesting question (made my brain work for a while).
    According to this table, RAL 7011 in RGB system is R:067 ; G:075 ; B:077 ;

    Try it in your program and please let us know if it is Ok. In my program it looks too dark.

    Re: 737 panel color

    I went to the paint store the other day to get some paint mixed up to paint my 737 panels and they said they could not mix paint by RGB numbers R=83 G=89 B=93. what numbers and what scale do they go by to mix paint. What info would I need to give them to mix paint up. Lets say Home Depot or Lowes.

    They don't need to be told what colours to mix, (R , G , B ) , just tell them what colour you need ,
    according to the RAL System. Most people say - for Boeing you need Ral 7011. Never tried it myself. When you get paint mixed , it is quite expensive.
    Sometimes you can find ready-made nitrocellulose -based or acrylic paint in a spray with printed Ral number on top.
