Any CargoLux folks on board who could tell me what the particular name of the "gray" is used on the 747's? I've been trying to match up via photos but gray can be a deceiving color in different lighting conditions. Thanks in advance!

I have the Revell 747-8 and it suggest a Revell 371 RAL 7035 so I am interested in this question as well.

A bit of digging on other forums suggests Humbrol 196 as an equivalent, but not quite the right shade so Humbrol 129 was suggested. I'm afraid you won't get an exact match.

Another chap used Tamiya AS-3 but it was a tad dark.
