I have recently got back into jet modelling after a long spell covering World War Two subjects and was wondering if you could help me with that age old chestnut colours! I have recently purchased the Revell 1/72 Eurofighter Typhoon 2-seater, a nice little kit, which I have enjoyed building, but now have a problem with when it comes to colours. I am aware that Revell have their own odd ideas about colours so ignoring that I decide to trawl the net and my model magazine collection for help on this matter and made my dilema worse? According to most sources the aircraft is painted in what used to be called Barley Grey, now I understand it is called Camouflage grey. I have several compaines versions of this colour, Humbrol, xtarcolor and Mr Color, but all seem to be very dark. I have tried lightening it with both white and light grey with no real success. Can anyone help me with this please.
Thanks in advance.
