IIRC those are US Navy colors. M is for Measure, I believe.

Testors has both colors in their Acryl line. Light grey is FS36440.

Yeahbut he is asking about US Airforce colors. When I was in the US Navy back in the late 50s, I recall the deckmates calling their grey paint 20L. Of Course that was 10 years after WWII.
